So I would run:

Get-MailboxDatabase -Status | select ServerName,Name,DatabaseSize  > to get the size of the mailbox store

and

Get-Publicfolderdatabase -status | ft DatabaseSize > to get the size of the public store?

Correct, you could also browse to the physical path of the databases and check the properties of the folders to get the size of them.
Good suggestion above.
Usage of Exchange management console is a good way to check the current size of the mailbox store and public store size.
Moreover, this link would also be a good option for you to check mailbox and public folder storage sizes.
