Let's see if old-fashioned techniques work with this sexy new iTunes 11 thingy.
Perhaps try the iTunes Store loads partially or returns "Error 306" or "Error 10054" section in the Specific Conditions and Alert Messages: (Mac OS X / Windows) section of the following document:

Thanks b noir, I followed the steps in the article and one linked to it but the firewall is fine and the iTunes diagnostics tool says nothing's wrong with the connection to the store. I might try installing the new version later today to see if that solves anything; I wrote the original post only a few hours before 11 was released, so "latest" referred to 10.7.0.21!

By way of experiment, try launching your iTunes by doing a "Run as administrator".
Quit iTunes first.
In Computer, open Local Disk C: or whichever drive you have your program files installed on.
If you have a 32-bit Windows, open the "Program files" folder.
If you have a 64-bit Windows, open the "Program Files (x86)" folder.
Open the "iTunes" folder.
Right-click on the iTunes.exe file and select "run as administrator".
Visit the store ... is it displaying properly now?

Crikey ... ancient trick from the iTunes 9.x days. (It worked on a "broken HTML" effect when looking at the Store for some folks.)
What security software are you running on the PC? (The thing in the old days that responded to this was sometimes related to Kaspersky or CA security software if I'm remembering correctly.)
