'03 Taurus won't start

This morning when I started my car, it didn't start right up. It usually does. 2nd time, started. Drove 12 miles. Turned it off and went into store for about 1 hr. Came out, would not start at all. Would do 2 cranks and then immediate 2nd try, 1 crank then like half a crank then none. Let it sit for a bit and it would do the same thing. Dome lights, anti theft, key in ignition bell all strong. A guy tried to jump it, no difference. Store employee checked it with some sort of "machine" tester said the battery is fine.
It's now been towed to mechanic that will open Monday and I can't get back to it to check anything. Any suggestions? Funds are non-existant- not that that will change what's wrong with it but all money saving, cheap suggestions appreciated! haha

If it's not turning over / cranking as it should and battery is o.k , may be starter . Could also check all wiring and earths / grounds .
