A is the form to use in the USA.
In Britain I would say "There is a big queue outside the shop." Or: "...a big queue waiting to get into the shop."

In the UK we use the word "queue", but we know that Americans say "line".
I would say, "There's a long queue outside the shop" or "There's a long queue to get into the shop".
Of course it's at the door. Where else would it be?

A is correct, and done with a contraction:
There's a long line outside the store.
Adding "door" is no addition to the communication.
