That is the only word among the 4 that adds meaning to the sentence.

Hi Handry,

'Come with' suggests 'accompany'.

I agree with Alan . It suggests accompany and partnership.

Hi!
Explain me please why it can't be: Will you come TO me to the store? If the person works there for exemple.

And if we use "with me" I thought it have to be "go with me" but not "come". Am I wrong?

'Go with me' and 'come with me' are both fine.

I think 'come with me' accompany me and 'come to me' means come towards me or near to me.

Perhaps, macs, but 'to' does not work with this test sentence.

I'm sorry, but I still fail to understand why?
For example, I'm in the store calling my friend and asking him: "Will you come to me to the store?"

I think in that case it would have to be "Will you come to me in the store?" or "Will you come to me at the store?" "to the store" implies "you" and "me" are both traveling to the store. "at the store" or "in the store" implies that "me" is at or in the store.
