Maybe they got mixed up or something from the store? Looking back it doesn't quit match a tiger cory catfish. Here is an image of a tiger cory catfish, they look pretty similar. Do you think you could get a better close up of the cory catfish?

Can someone tell me if this is a Julii or if not what is it?
Nice looking fish. Not a Julii, or even a Corydoras. From that picture it looks more like a Synodontis. Couldn't say which one, but I would guess possibly one of the many hybrid versions you find in pet stores.

I don't know what a "tiger cory catfish" is, sounds like a generic pet store label or a random google search result, but the picture you posted is of a Sterbai Cory

Definitely not a Julii cory and I thought the same thing that it looks like a type of synodontis rather than cory. Not sure which type of syno though. You can try Planetcatfish.com to identify.
