It's not easy to get that information, you may need a court order.

most small companies use a po box or home based business...it doesnt require a physical address since they probabley only sell online...if your worried get a name address and phone number and actually talk to someone first...that should help a little...

That ensures (theoretically) that the person picking up the letter has shown ID and it has been verified as correct.
