Model Answer 1:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I have recently purchased a studio apartment in Perth which is in the vicinity of your shop. I would like to purchase some electronic equipment for my apartment and writing to inquire about the availability of those products.

I require a toaster, a hand blender, a microwave oven, a big size mixie, a juicer, a dishwasher and a couple of fans along with a dozen LED lights. I would like you to appraise me regarding their availability (off the shelf) in your shop. In the case of an affirmative response, you may also provide a quote for all the above-mentioned items, at the earliest. On the contrary, if the items are not in stock, would it be convenient for you to place an order for the entire lot for me? You must also mention discounts if any, brand name and product specifications for those items.

I have plans to drop down in a week following this weekend, which happens to be on 17th September. I would also humbly request you to inform me the duration till the time you will be able to retain the electronic equipment for me.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Neeraj Mehra

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to inquire about some electronic goods that I want to purchase. Your shop has been recommended to me by a friend and he mentioned that you have a great variety of quality products and I am hoping to purchase them from you if you have the stock or can manage those for me.

I want to purchase a Sony DVD player, a Samsung 3D television set, a Technics turntable, a blender and a radio with long wave capability. Do you have these items in stock, or if not, will you be able to order them for me? If you do have these items, how long would you be able to hold them for me?

I am free this weekend and, if you have them, perhaps I can come over on Saturday morning to purchase and pick them up. However, before that, I am expecting a reply from you regarding the price and availability of those goods.  

Please write back to me as soon as possible at the above address or ring me at +85-8547120145.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Moore

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to inquire about the availability of some electrical goods that I intend to purchase. One of my colleagues recommended me your shop and I am hoping you would be able to supply those products to my home address.  

The items that I require are a Braun Men’s trimmer, an electronic burner, a microwave oven and a rice cooker. I live in Burneyshire, a small town near your store and would like to get purchase those from your store. I need those products before the end of July. Would you please write me back with the details of the products with prices? Please mention any discount you can offer. If the items are not in your stock, would you be able to order them from another source?

Further, I would like to know how long will you be able to hold it for me? I am expecting you can hold these products till the last week of July.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing this letter to inquire about the availability of some goods that I need to purchase soon. I have visited your store a few months ago and was impressed with your product catalogue. I am hoping you would be able to supply those products or order them for me from another source.  

I need an LG microwave oven, a Breville Smart Toaster, a 42 inch Sony Smart TV and a fully automatic washing machine. Kindly let me know if you have these electronic appliances ready to be shipped. In case, if you do not have any or all of these, would it be possible for you to order them on my behalf? I would really appreciate if you can recommend a good brand for the washing machine along with the price and specification of each item.

Moreover, please inform me for how long you can hold those items for me as I will be out of town for a few days on a business trip. I would be much obliged if you can hold these items till the end of November.

Expecting a reply from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Sample Answer 5:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing this letter to inquire about the goods I want to purchase from your store. I am looking for a digital photo frame and a crystal flower vase with electric light in it, which I saw when I visited your shop last time.  

I would like two purchase these items for a friend and present her on her birthday. The digital photo frame should be at least 15X12 inches and should come with a minimum 250 GB internal memory.  The flower vase should be made up of crystal and the twilight blue colour is my preference. It should be medium in size. Please mention the price and product specification in a return mail.

Also, let me know if the products are available in your shop, or if you would be able to order those from elsewhere. I am coming to Canberra at the beginning of the next month and can come down to your place to purchase those. Would be able to hold them till then?

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Namrata Jain
