Instructions for Preparing and Submitting Your Supplier Information Packet
Before Beginning to prepare your packet, we strongly suggest that you get to know our stores - visit a Kmart or Sears store. Surf our online stores at kmart.com and sears.com. Familiarize yourself with our offerings. Evaluate how your product will integrate into our current assortment, and be sure to note any competitive advantages of your product compared to our existing lines.
When you fill out the Supplier Profile
Form , please be as detailed as possible. If your company specializes in a certain product or service above your other offerings, please be sure to highlight that product or service. Use what you learned in visiting our store to clearly and concisely articulate the value your product or service would provide to Sears Holdings and how it would fit into our product line (if merchandise). Fill out the form completely. Incomplete forms will not be accepted.
Once you have completed the Supplier Profile
Form, gather the rest of your materials. You will need to include:
- Your profile form
- A copy of your certification(s). You can submit these electronically in PDF, TIF, or JPG formats. However, please ensure that the graphic is sized appropriately for printing.
- Any supporting documentation you deem necessary. This would include brochures, price lists, equipment lists, pictures, portfolios, presentations, information sheets, articles, press releases, etc.
- DO NOT SEND SAMPLES. They will be requested, if needed.
Once you have gathered these materials, you can submit them via electronically, hard copy or via fax to:

In order to remain active with the program, you must update you information with us on a yearly basis. We encourage you to re-submit if there are any substantive changes in your business, for example, if you develop new capabilities, markets, acquisitions, or attain a larger than expected volume growth within a year. In order to effectively work with your firm, we must have the most current contact information on file for your company. Please notify us on a timely basis if this changes. Also, it is critical that we have up-to-date records on registered suppliers' certification status. Please notify us immediately of any changes, including re-certification, de-certification, and any new certifications.
