Example Business Letter
September 24, 2012
Five Hundred Staples Drive
Farmington, MA 01702
Dear Sir or Madam:
I am an eighth grade student at Saranac Jr/Sr High School. In my computer class we are working on a business project where we track the stocks of different companies. We were assigned to write a business letter to one of the companies we are following, and I chose Staples because I enjoy shopping at your stores.
I have a question about your company. Does Staples actually sell an easy button that you can purchase at your stores? The last time I visited Staples, I didn't see one. If you don't sell them at your stores, do you know how I could get a hold of one? I think owning an easy button would be a pretty cool thing to have.
I have a suggestion for your company as well. I think you should open a store in Ionia, Michigan. Ionia is a good-sized town that has a Meijer, Wal-Mart, Menards, and a number of fast food places. However, we don't have any office supply stores. I think if you opened a store here, you would do pretty good business.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter, and I hope to hear back from you soon. By the way, could you send me something with your company logo on it. We will be studying company logos in class pretty soon, and having something with your logo would be really cool to show the class. Any letters or items we receive from the company we have written to will be presented in front of the entire class. Thanks again.
