The only way I know to make buttercream "shiny" is to use pearl spray. I kinda doubt grocery stores are using pearl spray though. It's possible the shiny effect you're seeing is condensation from taking the cake out of the freezer.

I know others have made fondant shiny by using a steamer on the cake once it's done.
