Dear Sir or Madam,


Model Answer: 

Dear Sir or Madam,

My name is Khoi Vinh, and I am writing this letter to enquire about the possibility of renting a commercial space in the very beautiful shopping mall of yours located at the downtown main street that has just recently been built.

I am planning to open a shop for children’s toys in your shopping complex which would require a large space, probably as large as 3,000 square feet, and that too has to be at a prime spot of your shopping complex.  And when I say “prime spot”, I mean to suggest that the shop has to be located in such a position that it can be very easily visible and accessible from all directions.  By the way, I would need such a large space because I am also planning to set up a little playground for children in it.

So, I would like to know if you could provide me with some information about the availability of such commercial space for me as per my requirements.  I would also appreciate it very much if you could possibly quote me a price to rent such a shop at your shopping centre. 

I would like to hear from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Khoi Vinh
