several robots.txt file disallows on a Shopify store

Hi We have several robots.txt file showing disallow on our Shopify Store, noted on the Google Search Console.
The disallow on some pages we are aware of as we dont want crawled. However we have 
noted the 'search' and 'collections' blocked and have over past few months losing significant sales.  
 
Here below a copy of what we are noting on the Google Search Console. Robots txt Tester Page
 
# we use Shopify as our ecommerce platform

How is this a solution!? This has happened to my store and my whole site has been WIPED from Google due to disallowed Javascript at checkouts which I have not done myself, had the run around from Shopify support, something has changed my code and I think its the 'One Page Checkouts' Shopify brought in, my whole sit has crashed! No one has anwers, Shopify experts MY ASS! I am furious
