Stores do not require a Mezuzah. [However some Poskim rule that only temporary store booths, such as the booths of a fair, are exempt from having a Mezuzah, however permanent stores are obligated in a Mezuzah. Practically one is to place the Mezuzah without a blessing.]
Store inside a house: A store that is inside one’s house is obligated to have a Mezuzah [with a blessing].
 Michaber 286/11
The reason: As since they are only used during daytime they are not considered a place of dwelling. Thus stores are not similar to storage areas which are equally used by day and night, and are hence obligated to have a Mezuzah. [Taz 286/10; Vetzaruch Iyun as in today’s times, in the winter all stores are still open by night. Would this then obligate them to have a Mezuzah according to the Taz?]
 Yad Hakitanah brought in Pischeiy Teshuvah 10
 The reason: Being that the stores will be taken down after the fair. [ibid]
 The reason: As one spends his entire day there, as well as that they contain ones merchandise and is thus similar to a storage room. [ibid]
