    Hello Canadianicon, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Open your Apps screen to see if the Store may still be listed there. If so, then you could just "Pin to Start" it back.

    If Store isn't there, then you could pin the shortcut in the tutorial below to your Start screen if you like.

    Hope this helps,
