give this a try

,BasePrice = Case when BaseStorePrice = 1
                        then CONVERT(VARCHAR(100),BaseStorePrice)
                        else CONVERT(VARCHAR(100),BaseStoreQty) + ' / ' + CONVERT(VARCHAR(100),BaseStorePrice)
End

Paraphrasing the above T-SQL...

CASE
  WHEN BaseStorePrice = 1 THEN {a number }
  ELSE {a varchar} END

CASE blocks with multiple WHEN..THEN..ELSE have to return a value of the same data type, so in this case returning either a numeric 1 or a varchar 'the quantity / the price' won't work.

Try '1' instead of 1 so that both will return a varcahr.
