Installing the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo reinstalls the App Store for you.


Restart your Mac after the combo is installed.


It's ok to do this even though you already have v10.6.8 running on your Mac.



Make sure your Mac qualifies to run Mountain Lion before purchasing.


See Step 1 here >  Apple - Upgrade your Mac to OS X Mountain Lion.
