Multiple password stores

In my situation (dozens of different projects and separated password stores) I use direnv to set the environment var PASSWORD_STORE_DIR. 
Works wonders, especially since direnv also takes care of python versions and ansible 😉 No clutter from different projects, yay!

The only "downside" is that I have to cd to the specific directory.

I'm new in the list and scrolled back a few months to see if I could find  living thread about how to utilize multiple password stores. I didn't.
I currently have 2 stores but would like to use more in other collaboration constellations. I use the awesome passmenu client and that's where my trouble begin.
I have an alias which specify a different store directory but in that store bash completion does not work which makes it very tedious to work with.

Does anyone else have the need for several stores and if that case how did you solve this?
I wouldn't mind getting my hands dirty and help out, do you have any suggestions on where to add such a feature? Would it only be in the completion section or does it require a more in depth change?
