Delete the store app again if you haven't done already. Try running the safe operation details in the link below.
I would suggest running option 3 restore the file system. Rinse and repeat the safe mode operation then run option 4 rebuild the database.
Running both of the above will check for corruption in the system OS and HDD and hopefully fix them. I would also recommend power cycling your router (rebooting) by switching off for a few minutes. Then try running the store app again see if you have any luck this time around.

eh quick update i just started borderlands 2 and tryed to search for DLC via that it showed up the mechromancer DLC i already had downloaded via redeem code but nothing else... but point being its in the PS Store... all be it a limited only to borderlands 2 selection and cant search more but it clearly is the ps store.... so it MUST be sony and ps3 people did something bad in update... right?

ok i tryed everything even new harddrive wtih fesh install and it didnt work, but now have figured it....
it was the hub that it was pluged into which was connected to our virigin superhub/modem, it was too slow and the store crashes when you have a connection lower than like 10mbs or something , but put new hub in and now runs as smooth as anything
thanx for all help and hope anyone sees this with similar problems they can test to see if it is the same reason for them

The error code 80028f08 indicates that the content you are trying to access was not detected. I think that there may have been an issue when you download the PS Store app that is preventing it from installing.
As a first step I would advise resetting your Internet connection settings and also use a wired over wireless connection.
Please let us know how you get on.
