Installing A New Wall Outlet For A Stove

I recently removed an old electric stove during a kitchen remodel and it was wired into the wall, no plug. I want to install a new stove and install a plug in the wall. I have a 4 wire set up coming out of the wall with conduit, it is not mounted to anything. The guy at Ace hardware said that i needed to know what amps each wire was before we could pick out the appropriate wall outlet. Is this true? And does anyone know what style of outlet i should get for a 4 wire set up? thanks

Have you bought the new stove yet? Did it come with a cord and plug?

What's the amp rating on the circuit breaker that supplies the existing wires?
