Dear Ms. Hightower:
I offer 12 years of experience managing day-to-day retail operations for stores generating between $10M and $15M annually, making me an excellent fit to your Sometown store manager opening.
Since graduating from XYZ University with a BA in business, I have progressed through increasingly responsible retail management assignments, including serving as store manager at DEF Company (my present position), electronics department manager at GHI Company and assistant store manager at JKL Company.
In each position, I drove the attainment of revenue, profit, shrink-reduction, customer satisfaction and sales-volume goals. My ability to propel goal-surpassing results and motivate employees to deliver top performance has been demonstrated through accomplishments that include:
I share ABC Corporation’s commitment to building an environment with the highest level of customer service, team morale, merchandising standards and store operations. To arrange a meeting, please call me at (555) 555-5555. Thank you for your time.
