First let me thank you for all the time you devoted to my application for the Sales Manager position. I know you were busy weaning applicants and carving room for me is greatly appreciated.
With my knowledge of retail I have long been an admirer of and shopper at Colonial Family Retail. It is specifically why I submitted my resume after seeing your listing on Monster.com. But now I have to write this withdraw application letter. I cannot tell you how excited I was when Colonial Family officially offered me the position at their Lancaster location.
Unfortunately I am afraid I cannot accept the position at this time. So I am writing this withdraw application letter for Sales Manager. I have been offered another position that not only aligns with my skills but is closer to home. Your confidence in my potential means a lot to me and I hope my decision will not throw off your plans with this withdraw application letter.
It was a pleasure meeting with you and members of the Colonial Family team. I wish all of you the best in everything you do.
