It really depends on the type of store. Obviously sales are a big part of every business, but it really depends how that store operates. If they are more of a sales person and customer relations type of store then yes you will want to have a good proven sales record because their profits are based on if YOU can sell the clothes. If the store is like most stores and really don't have the employees selling the clothes, they are just there more for helping and clerical work, then no sales would not be crucial to the job. I probably wouldn't have said it like that anyways because it just doesn't sound good, and can lead to them thinking other things like why you can't make sales. Don't do what some of the others said and tell them you are too good at something because not only have they probably heard that before, but nobody likes a brown noser. If they ask for your weaknesses just be honest, but try and phrase it in a way that doesn't sound so bad, or make it seem like something that can easily be improved.0
