A Cashier should be honest, efficient, and service oriented.
The below Example of cover letter for a Cashier introduces us to a flexible employee (“open to assuming whatever duties are required”) who is helpful to customers.
Definitely an asset to the store.

There are stores where the prices are reasonable and the location is convenient, but the cashiers are so apathetic, slow (“Let the customers wait, I’m in the middle of a coffee.”), or sloppy about returning the correct amount of change that customers would rather go to a further store where they’ll be treated respectfully.
Include whatever duties you performed – maybe you helped stock the shelves during quiet times in the store or assisted in the annual inventory taking.

Re: Cashier Position
I am writing to express my interest in the position of a cashier for the new downtown branch of your store.
As you see from my resume, I have worked as a cashier in supermarkets, in variety stores, and in a Laundromat. I am punctual, work quickly but accurately under pressure, and enjoy working with the public.
In addition to scanning bar codes and giving change, I also weigh produce and calculate the total price from the price per unit.
I alerted customers to store sales (“If you get another one of these, you’ll be saving $5.00,” “That brand of tomato sauce isn’t on sale this week; take the one right above it.”), and even suggested recipes when asked.
I am familiar with security procedures for taking checks and with verification of age for purchase of restricted products. I neatly packed groceries, wrapped presents attractively, and am open to assuming whatever duties are required for the position.
I am available to start immediately.
Please be in contact with me at the above phone number or email so we can arrange a time to meet.
