I wrote 'sorry' also, but thinking about what I would say in a shop - 'Excuse me...' would be the preferred words. Tricky this translation business.

Why can't it be: Sorry, I'm looking for a salesman??

"Excuse me" is asking for permission. "Sorry" is asking for forgiveness. You say "excuse me" before doing something that might inconvenience someone. You say "sorry" after having inconvenienced someone.
