Dear Ms. Richardson
I am writing to apply for the Retail Sales Assistant position with Clark’s Department Store. I have seven years of retail sales experience in various kinds of stores. In my current position as a Retail Sales Associate with Bair Apparel I provide customer service help women in the fitting room answer questions and ring up purchases daily.
I am familiar with all aspects of the retail industry including taking inventory and merchandising. My friendly personality puts customers at ease and can be attributed to my above average sales numbers. I am creative and detail oriented as well. I enjoy setting up displays and helping customers to put together ensembles and make choices that work for them. In previous employee reviews I have consistently been praised for my exemplary people skills and would love the opportunity to bring that expertise to the position of Retail Sales assistant in your store.
I am confident you will find me to be a first-rate candidate. I welcome you to contact me for a face to face meeting at a time that works for you as my availability can be flexible. I look forward to speaking with you and thank you for your consideration.

Dear Ms. Long,

I am writing to apply for the position of sales assistant, as advertised in the Daily Post on June 5, 2014.
As you will see on my resume, I have experience working in the grocery industry and for a large department store. I have excellent customer service and relationship building skills, which I think are essential for this position. In both of my previous positions I had a track record for consistently meeting sales targets.
I have enclosed my resume. It shows that I will bring important skills to this position, including:
- time management and strong organizational skills;
- excellent customer service;
- cash-handling and till reconciliation; and
- in-store displays.
I would very much enjoy having the opportunity to talk with you further to discuss the requirements and expectations of the position, including how I can use my skills to benefit Brandname Sales.
Thank you for considering my application. I look forward to hearing from you. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
