To Whom It May Concern,

After 44 years in Retail Management I am looking for new challenges in a Company who is looking for someone with proven Management skills and an excellent record of improving sales, profit, engagement, diversity and reducing inventory shrink.

I have been in Management for over 44 years at Lowe’s, Builder’s Square and Walmart stores. I have been part of the management team as well as Store Manager. I understand the demands of retail and thrive in this environment. I strive to make the experience of both the customers and the associates a positive one every day. I am accomplished at getting my employees to work hard and stay on task at all times but still making them feel appreciated and an integral part of the team. I have an incredible work ethic and take pride in doing whatever task is before me to the best of my ability.

My previous experience as Store Manager of Lowe’s, Builder’s Square and Walmart give me the skills to be an immediate asset for any Retail store. I have spent extensive time running both the general merchandise and the grocery side of the store at Walmart and have had great success in my work. I also have extensive experience in Management in the Home Improvement industry. I wish to share my knowledge and love for the business with both customers and the team working with me.

Thank you in advance for your time. I know my proven leadership skills, high ethical and professional standards and flexibility would allow me to be a significant asset to your team. I would be a perfect fit if a Store Manager or Management position within your company were to become available and would appreciate your consideration. I look forward for an opportunity to become part of the team.

Best Regards,

Duke Stanton
