Append to href using JQuery

I have two links on a page that when clicked open modal dialog box. In the box there are two links that I would like to append with the herf from the main link that was clicked. The modal box opens but I can't seem to get the href from the main link added to the herf's of the links in the modal box.

Or, if they are added, clicking out of the modal box, then back end causes links to be appended twice.

What am I doing wrong?

<a class="launchWebstore select-class" href="/p/product1">Visit our Store - Product 1</a><br />

<a class="launchWebstore select-class" href="/p/product2">Visit our Store - Product 2</a>

<!-- hidden modal-content -->
<div id="storeModal" class="modal fade" tabindex="-1" role="dialog" aria-labelledby="chooseStore" aria-hidden="true">
  <div class="modal-dialog">
    <div class="modal-content">
      <div class="modal-header">
        <button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="modal" aria-hidden="true">&times;</button>
        <h4 class="modal-title" id="chooseStore">Please Choose Your Store</h4>
      </div>
      <div class="modal-body">
          <div class="well">

          </div>
      </div>
</div><!-- /.modal-content -->

<script type="text/javascript">
    $(".launchWebstore").click(function(event){
                
        event.preventDefault();
        $('#storeModal').modal();
        $(".webstore-button").click(function(event){
            $('#storeModal').modal('hide');
        });
        
        $("a.store-URL").each(function() {
           var _href = $(".launchWebstore").attr("href"); 
           $(this).attr("href", $(this).attr("href") + _href);
        });                     

    });
</script>

Thank you very much for your help. Your solution worked perfectly.
I did add a separate function specifically for opening the modal.

<script type="text/javascript">
    $(".launchWebstore").click(function(event){
        event.preventDefault();
        $('#storeModal').modal();
        $(".webstore-button").click(function(event){
            $('#storeModal').modal('hide');
        });
    });                        
</script>
