Kmart Store-to-Distribution Center Re-Alignment

July 6, 2009

Kmart Re-Alignment 

Effective Friday, July 31, 2009, 18 Kmart Stores will be served by a DIFFERENT Regional Distribution Center (“RDC”) than serves those Kmart stores today. See the attached file for details on the impacted facilities.

BOTTOM LINE for VENDORS

1) The orders you receive from Sears Holdings for stores listed below with “In-Store” dates on or after July 31 will show a DIFFERENT destination than orders you received for these stores previously.

2) Orders should always be shipped to the destination which appears on the Purchase Order, regardless of the destination which appeared on previous orders for that store.

3) If your company maintains internal tables within your systems that “hard code” relationships between Kmart stores to specific distribution centers, you must update those tables so that you ship your POs to the correct distribution center on or after July 31st for the stores below.
