When you do not accept 'The shop had already closed' you should not suggest it!

How could I say: "the store was already closed"? Do I have to use the participle?

"Магазин был уже закрыт"/"Магазин уже был закрыт". Although, you can use the Russian translation which is given by Duo in some contexts, but if you need the passive - see the first two sentences. :) I am native :)

На многих сайтах пишут, что "already" это маркер "Present Perfect". И поэтому изначально написал "The store has already closed." Но опять поверил подсказке и исправил на "The store had already closed." А правильным оказалось и вовсе "The store is already closed.". Хотя, как я понимаю, без контекста все эти три предложения должны быть приняты. Может мне кто-нибудь объяснить, где я ошибаюсь?

I think the primary translation is technically not correct. "The store is already closed" should be "магазин уже закрыт". I think the best English translation is "the store already closed", Simple Past. In British usage it is more common to use Present Perfect: "the store has already closed" so that would be another good answer. I think we would need more context to justify Past Perfect though. Like: "когда я пошел домой в шест, я увидел что магазин уже закрылся". Even though I guess Past Perfect is technically possible without this context, it seems unlikely.

The store had already closed should be accepted, especially since that is the wording in the hint!
