Splitting and removing duplicates is easy with in TD14+:

SELECT DISTINCT Store_line_no, token
FROM TABLE (STRTOK_SPLIT_TO_TABLE(tab.Store_line_no,tab.str1, '|')
   RETURNS (Store_line_no INT
           ,tokennum INTEGER
           ,token VARCHAR(100) CHARACTER SET UNICODE)
    ) AS t

And this is how this information should be stored.
 Why do you need to create denormalized data again?
If TD's XML-services are available you can use XMLAGG to do a group concat:

SELECT Store_line_no, 
   RTRIM(XMLAGG(token || '|' ORDER BY token) (VARCHAR(10000)),'|')
   previous query
 ) AS dt
