Sample Stock Clerk Cover Letter

A stock clerk cover letter can be just the document you need to catch the attention of the hiring manager at a grocery store or large supermarket--especially if you include what is most important--your understanding of what is required, such as taking inventory of merchandise, identifying items that need to be ordered or replaced, receiving, opening and stocking store items and setting up advertising as well as packing customer purchases. It's important to mention all of these elements in stock clerk cover letters if the job hunters hope to land the job.

Hiring Manager
Top Hill Supermarket

Anyplace, USA 99999

Dear Mr. Matthews:

With this cover letter I am applying for the position of stock clerk, which I saw listed on JobBankUSA.com. I've worked with other stock clerks at Mason's Market in Bayside for two years. I'm told that I'm a hard worker, dedicated to my tasks, and fast at being able to take inventory, restock shelves, report damage, help customers with their purchases and set up advertising for 'specials.'

If you'd like to meet me to talk over what I could bring to this work, I'll be happy to come into the store any afternoon next week. I go to school mornings and am finished at 12:00 noon. Please phone me at 695-888-8756 and give me a time and date that works for you.

Thank you for reading my cover letter and resume. I look forward to hearing from you.
