While the woman was working, she was approached by the offender who grabbed her by both arms to restrain her and then began to kiss her.
Appalled, she asked the man to leave which he eventually did.
He is described as being white, in his early 20s, with strawberry blonde or ginger hair, of a medium build and about 5ft 8in tall. He was wearing all grey clothing, a jumper with buttons on the neck, jogging pants and black trainers.
Police Constable Lucia Cronin said: “It would be unthinkable for the vast majority of people to be sexually assaulted at their place of work, and it is completely unacceptable this woman was subjected to such appalling behaviour.
“We believe the offender was drunk or under the influence of something but there is absolutely no excuse to assault a shop worker in this way and leave her feeling fearful and shaken up at her place of work.
“We have now released a CCTV still of a man we want to talk to in connection with this assault and I would appeal to anyone who recognises him to come forward.”
