Opted to construct store (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

depot

Here is my best explanation:

'store' is the definition.

('depot' can be a synonym of 'store')

'opted to construct' is the subsidiary indication.

'to construct' indicates anagramming the letters.

'opted' anagrammed gives 'depot'.

This clue was last seen in Mirror

(Other definitions for depot that I've seen before include "Storage base", "Headquarters - storehouse", "Large store", "Toped (anag.)", "Bus garage", "Repository", "Regimental HQ", "Storehouse or main bus station (5)", "Storehouse as for supplies" and "Opted (anag)".)
