You may have a federal license but there are businesses that will require that you get a state license as well. Before you get the permits, think of all the positive activities that are likely to happen in your business premise and make sure they are covered by the permits you are getting.

Any retail service attract a tax identification number down at the state level. If you happen to employ minors you will need minor work permits. The regulations of the licenses will differ as you compare one state to another. Take your time to ensure you are compliant with all the regulations that apply to your business because some attract some hefty fines and consequences if you fail.
