The policy is pretty much up to you. If you want to use your personal
key, then go ahead. Then again, there are advantages to having the
store have it's own key. Of course, then the issue becomes one of
trust. How do I know that this is really the store's key?
Personally, I'd create a key for the store, and then sign it with your
own personal key. That way, people who trust your key (by signing it
with theirs) can also trust the key that you sign.
Hope this helps.
