The problem here is that the result of SELECT statement is a table, and
in a relational DBMS, a table should have a fixed set of a columns.
Assuming that the number of stores than can change over time, the above
request - reasonable as it may be - does really fit in well. To achieve
the result, you will need to endulge in a lot of dynamic SQL. You may find
that it's easier to this client-side.

Nevertheless, a standard recommendation to this in SQL, is to look at
RAC, a third-party tool. I have never used it myself, though. Check out
