Dear Ms Graham,
Whilst browsing the Dayjob.com job board I noticed an advertisement for your Retail Manager position. I am an expert at creating and maintaining the right environment for retail success, and am supremely confident in my ability to make a resounding success of your vacancy.
I have proven experience in luxury retail sales in a managerial capacity, and possess a comprehensive understanding of what drives turnover and high profit margins. On a personal level I am someone who really enjoys working in the Retail environment and who is committed to a lifelong career in it.
At the moment I am employed by The Southern Fashion Company as a Retail Manager. I play a pivotal role within business, and am primarily responsible for retail planning, online sales, staff roistering, stock management and creating a welcoming environment for shoppers.
I would also like to mention your stores reputation for being an integral part of the local community which it serves. This is something that really appeals to me, and is one of the main reasons why I want to work for your company.
The accompanying resume will serve to give you a better idea of my ability to run stores so that they not only survive but thrive and succeed.
If this brief account of my competencies intrigues you enough to invite me for an interview, then feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience.
Thank you very much for taking up some of your valuable time to review my application.
