Sears Trading Partner Update

Tuesday, March 04, 2008

Our move to Wachovia Bank has been delayed.

Our current expectations are that the project will be completed a month beyond our original dates. Payments will continue to go through Harris Bank (Sears) and Bank of New York (Kmart) until further notice. We will communicate the new transition dates as soon as they are available.

Original Communication Follows:

Subject: Bank Consolidation: Sears ACH Co Names and IDs

To our EDI Trading Partners:

Effective at the end of February for Sears and the end of March for Kmart, we will be moving our bank payments from Harris (Sears) and Bank of New York (Kmart) to Wachovia. You may notice several changes as a result of this move. Please make sure you have not hard coded any of this information into your current transactions or systems, as they will fail following our move to Wachovia.

The changes you will see are to the bank account numbers and routing numbers, the payer name in the 820, and you will receive your money from Wachovia. You may need to inform your bank of these changes to prevent any delay in the receipt of funds.

The new payer name will reflect Sears Holdings Management Corporation. Again, please make sure that this information is not hard coded in your 820, and that your company does not require any other internal changes to support the new routing and account numbers.

Reminder communication will be sent prior to the change over for Sears and again for Kmart. Frequently asked questions about this change are outlined below. Additional questions not addressed in this communication should be directed to Jennifer Ritorno, EDI Support Manager, jritorn@searshc.com.
