91 jeep Cherokee sluggish start?

Sometimes sluggish start sometimes normal strength start.I had the battery check its ok, then had starter/solenoid checked out by parts store they said thats ok.

I cleaned connections and reinstalled, a few days later no start just a click so I got under and tapped the starter a couple of times and it sluggishly started & all sluggish starts since. So would you figure it has to be the starter even though the parts store said its ok? Or what else could it be?

    starter solenoid most likely. Not the first time that I have seen people falsely diagnose these things. Check the ground on the starter too.
