Mr. James Eagan,
Hiring Manager
Harlow's Department Store
32 Main Street
Barrington, USA 99999

Dear Mr. Eagan:

I have been in the retail industry for ten years-first in sales, then as the manager of the women's shoe department. Now I would like to move on to department store manager of a modest-sized department store with a solid reputation. Certainly Harlows has both.

Your description on JobBankUSA.com of the job and the duties suits me perfectly. May I come in to your store next week to talk with you about my skill and experience and to find out more about what you hope to see in the department store managers you interview?

Please call me on my cell phone: 888-888-8888 to arrange a date and time that work for you. Thank you for reading this cover letter and for considering me for the job.
