Employers seeking a retail sales assistant are usually interested in finding out whether or not the candidate will be a good cultural fit in their system. This calls for a must inclusion of cover letter with every retail sales assistant resume.
An ideal cover letter for a retail sales assistant presents a candidate’s personality. It clearly communicates the persuasive and sales skills of the candidate. To convince the employer that you are good at sales, what better chance will you get than to demonstrate by selling your candidacy?
Showcasing some of your accomplishments in similar role is very fruitful. Select some really important professional achievements and highlight the same. This is the best way to communicate your potential and achievements will also serve to back up the claims your resume makes.

Dear Ms. Jacob:
Could you use the services of a customer oriented and experienced retail sales assistant who brings a track record of effective implementation of sales strategies?
✔ Enhanced customer satisfaction by 60% demonstrating excellent customer care skills
✔ Revitalized sales by up selling and old product by utilizing creative display and promotion strategies
✔ Exceeded annual sales target at B.B Cosmetics by 40% in 2012
These are only few of my noteworthy accomplishments in the field. My resume documenting my strong retail sales background in detail is enclosed for consideration.
Thanks to my effective persuasion and sales skills, I was promoted from a junior sales person to a retail sales assistant within the first year of work. I bring to Just jeans 6+ years’ firsthand experience in up selling dying products, enhancing clientele by ensuring the clients have a top quality buying experience and handling customer complaints in a win-win manner. Being a people’s person I am good at understanding the client’s needs and thus assisting them as they take a decision.
Remaining up to date regarding the product features and pricing is yet another strength I bring to Just Jeans. I make it a point to maintain functional knowledge regarding product features, specifications and pricing details since this information is must when dealing with clients.
I would like to have a meeting with you to discuss the position further. I shall be following up next Tuesday. In case you need to speak earlier, I’m reachable at (009) 222-3333. Thank you for your time and consideration.
