In the conversation Ben says "Y me acuerdo que en la tienda tenía...".
Marina corrects him saying: "había".
Why is tenía wrong here?

If I'd said "Y me acuerdo que la tienda tenía.." (without en), it would have been fine, meaning "And I remember that the shop used to have..."
But I was trying to say "And I remember that in the shop there used to be...", so the verb haber, for there is or there are, is better....
Does that make any sense?!

Yes it does, thanks.
