Thank you for your suggestion, it worked for the most part.
When I disabled the multistore for store 2 (after changing the default store to store 2) it set most of the default information to that of store 1; including the contact information, the logo on the home page, the image in the top banner, the stripe, paypal and amazon pay keys.
Now I have to figure out how to delete the orders from store 1 that belong to store 2 and vice versa :|
Also recaptcha is not working in store 2. I thought it was a multistore problem but I guess it is not. That is a problem for another day…
