It shouldn't affect your credit because it was the store itself that closed the account. If it was you calling in and closing it then that could affect it.

It depends on how they handled the change.  If they in fact closed an account and opened a new one and assigned you new account date, then you officially had two accounts with this one establishment   It would be same as having to Citibank cards.    As long as they maintained the same account number and same date then it should have been treated as the same account.
