If you are going to have a physical store you need an LLC. If it is a side home business Sol P is what you need. Either way it will give you the requirements for an EIN, but keep in mind there are pluses and minuses for each, which you should talk to your tax advisor about. Both are public information, which can been seen by anyone, so be smart.
