Call me crazy-- but shouldn't it be "it was HE at the store"? Which
would
make it "it was who at the store" (if I even could find a context for
that
phrase)?
Any other thoughts out there?

Dear Crazy,

It was indeed he. The correct form of the pronoun would be clearer by
expanding the sentence to include that which is understood. It was he
[who was] at the store.
