Question about downloading games

I bought the new Xbox 1, is it better to download games and paying, or buy them at Stores?

That's purely a matter of preference.

I personally like having digital games (no switching discs required), but others would not ever give up their physical collection of discs. And often physical copies can be found for cheaper and get discounted more often than digital ones.

There's no right answer to this. You have to decide for yourself what you prefer.

However, if you have a slow Internet connection, you will almost certainly want to go with physical copies. The games on Xbox One are large in size (the smallest I have is 4GB, but apart from that they range in size from 10GB to 40GB). On a slow Internet connection this will take a long time. Or if you have a monthly usage cap, you will quickly use it up completely and your ISP might shut off your connection for the rest of the month or start charging you extra for the additional usage. These are important points to consider.
