Store Manager cover letter
(retail store manager covering letter)
Dear Mrs. Simons,
I would like to hereby formally apply for an opportunity to be considered for the position of Store
Manager at (name of company), as advertised in the News Wire Journal on (date).
I believe that I am the right person for this particular position, having had (5) years experience in the
retail industry, working on the shop floor of (name of store/s), and at (name of store) where I am
I have been looking for a change for some time now, as (give reason: need a job closer to home etc.)
and would like to advance my career and be given the opportunity to demonstrate that I am ready to
be promoted to store manager.
Over the past (5) years, I have proven to have excellent communication skills, both with fellow co
workers and customers alike, which has given me the confidence to excel at what I do.
I do believe that I am now ready to take my responsibilities up a level and take on the responsibility of
store manager, being able to lead fellow workers and guide them to be the best that they can be,
having experienced the required duties myself first hand.
During my job at (Victoria Secrets) I assisted the window dresser on a frequent basis as she very much
enjoyed my creative input and ideas which became noticed one day when she was not able to come in
for work. We needed a rushed window display that particular day so we all worked on it together but
my fellow coworkers all liked my ideas and chose me to lead the last minute task we had at hand.
From that moment on, she frequently asked for my input or opinion when she needed it.
The opportunity that I had that day showed me that I have natural leadership qualities as well as the
ability to build a good rapport with staff members in a relaxed manner, enjoyable for all. I am a good
team player and enjoy thinking outside the box.
I believe that I would be a welcome asset to your already dedicated team, bringing together their
individual talents so as to better appreciate one another and therefore to work better together as a
team. These areas of synergy I feel will improve sales, customer relations and keep the store
environment one step ahead of the rest all crucial factors for making a brand and store stand out
from the competition.
I look forward to being able to interview further in person,
Please find enclosed my Resume/CV for your further consideration.
