i have two tables. in table1 i have two columns (store,email),in table2 i have two columns (store,logs). In table1 ,for one particular store we have only one email id associated. but in table2 with one particular store we will have multiple logs.

Do you need to send the file names or the contents of those files?

If the contents, where are the files?
And, should the contents be written into the body of the email, or sent as attachments?

If you only need to send the file names, then something like this should work...

    v_connection   UTL_SMTP.connection;
    FOR e IN (SELECT e.store, e.email
                FROM store_emails e
               WHERE e.store IN (SELECT l.store
                                   FROM store_logs))
        v_connection := UTL_SMTP.open_connection('your.email.server.com');
        UTL_SMTP.helo(v_connection, 'your.domain.com');
        UTL_SMTP.mail(v_connection, 'your_return_address@your.domain.com');
        UTL_SMTP.rcpt(v_connection, e.email);

        UTL_SMTP.write_data(v_connection, 'From: Your Name' || UTL_TCP.crlf);
        UTL_SMTP.write_data(v_connection, 'To: ' || e.email || UTL_TCP.crlf);
        UTL_SMTP.write_data(v_connection, 'Subject: Store Logs' || UTL_TCP.crlf);
        UTL_SMTP.write_data(v_connection, UTL_TCP.crlf);

        -- This is easy and likely sufficient for short emails
        -- but, if your email body becomes large
        -- you may want to construct it as a clob before connecting to the email server
        -- then write the clob into the email body so you don't get timeouts
        FOR l IN (SELECT logs
                    FROM store_logs l
                   WHERE l.store = e.store)
            UTL_SMTP.write_data(v_connection, l.logs || UTL_TCP.crlf);
        END LOOP;
