    I've never had a job in retail and I really really want this job so if anyone has some advice for what retail shops are looking for and how to sell myself better when I have no experience.

    Hi, a lot of retail stores do not mind if you have experience or not. Think about when you yourself have received great customer service from someone in a shop, and use that to demonstrate what you would do in a customer service role. Customer service is the most important thing that retail stores are looking for. Think of examples of when you've been independent and used your own initiative to complete a task, similarly think about when you've worked well in a group! Good luck!
