    Does anyone know if subdomains, e.g store.mysite.com benefit from link juice to the root domain?

    I don't see why not, however I would be careful about interlinking your sites. Also you may experience less of link juice boost considering they're coming from the same IP/hosting.

    It's hard to say what you mean by link juice. Domain authority carries over to sub-domains but not the flow of PageRank per se.

    The subdomain will benefit from the link juice of the root domain if it has a backlink from the root domain. If it doesn't, no link juice will flow to it but it might still benefit from the root domain's age.
