Um.. guys...

I don't think that the 'ship's stores' literally meant a STORE in the Wal*Mart definition of the word, but the naval definition, which is quoted below:

5.stores, supplies of food, clothing, or other requisites, as for a household, inn, or naval or military forces.
The 'store' that you guys are talking about we've actually seen very early on in Trek.. the promenade on K-7. The Enterprise, though, seems to have a supply section of the ship, controlled by the Quartermaster.
Bingo. That's how I've always interpreted the reference in TOS.
STAR TREK: 1964-1991, 2013-?
