Install Windows Store App itself

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

I used to deinstall, when I set up a new Windows 8 installation, every App via Powershell by this command:

Get-AppxPackage | Remove-AppxPackage

It removed any Apps except some very basic ones e.g. the Store App itself.

In Windows 10, however, this command seems to remove also the Store App.
My question is how I can get it back. In the browser store page there is no reaction when I click on an App to install. And the store itself can’t be found.

I know that there is the command Get-AppxPackage <packagename> but I don’t know it for the store itself.

Can anybody help me with this?
