Begin you letter as follow:
I am writing to you regarding an incident that occurred when I was shopping in your store last Thursday afternoon. I am sorry to say that I received some extraordinarily poor service from one of your new shop assistants; in fact, the lady in question was extremely impolite.
I was in the changing room trying on some clothes and I noticed that one of the garments was ripped. I explained the situation to the shop assistant, but she accused me of tearing the garment myself and demanded that I pay for it. I explained to her that I had no intention of paying for something I had not damaged and that I would address you directly about this issue.
I have been shopping happily in your store for a number of years and normally find your staff to be extremely helpful. I would like to suggest that you provide this staff member with some customer service training, otherwise I think she may easily have a negative effect on your business’ reputation.
I look forward to hearing your response regarding this issue.
