Nested Summarize Layout Question

I've been searching to no avail to find a way to use the Summarize tool by itself or in conjunction with crosstab or transpose to setup a nested summary table.  I have 3 stores with different category items for different dates.  I want to group by the Store name and then dates under it with a count of the items in columns.  I can't attach my workflow due to proprietary data but I did a screen shot of some generic data I've mocked up.  On the left is how my data comes from Crosstab tool and the right hand pic shows what I'd like it to look like.  

 

Any ideas on how to summarize this way?

Having two rows of headers isn't the most efficient from a data standpoint. Would it be okay if the values in the first column are broken out into two? If so, you can achieve this with the cross-tab. I added a data cleansing to fill in the nulls.

 

Hope this helps!

Unfortunately I need it like the layout on the right.  Otherwise I'd just summarize it.  I appreciate you looking at it so quickly.

Hi @knobsdog,

 

See attached - It follows the same principle as the first solution then just plays around a bit with placement of the records.
