A store is an enclosure for holding articles. It is usually secured from theft. One type of store to which the word is often applied is a store from where a retail business is run, otherwise known as a shop. See Retailer for the main article on this latter usage.
Another common usage of the word store relates to the storage of munitions and other military materials. A munitions dump and a magazine can sometimes be referred to in this manner.
