REMOVAL OF SECURITIES FROM REGISTRATION

On October 4, 2010, Sears Holdings Corporation (the “Registrant”) filed a registration statement on Form S-8 (Registration No. 333-169747) (the “2010 Registration Statement”) to register 1,200,000 shares of common stock of the Registrant (“Common Stock”) and an indeterminate amount of interests (the “Plan Interests”) with respect to the Sears Holdings Savings Plan (formerly Sears Holdings 401(k) Savings Plan), the Lands’ End, Inc. Retirement Plan (the “Lands’ End Plan”), and the Sears Holdings Puerto Rico Savings Plan (formerly Sears Puerto Rico Savings Plan). On September 11, 2013, the Registrant filed a registration statement on Form S-8 to register additional shares of common stock of the Registrant and an indeterminate amount of interests with respect to the Sears Holdings Savings Plan and the Sears Holdings Puerto Rico Savings Plan. On April 4, 2014, the Registrant completed the distribution of 100% of the outstanding shares of common stock of Lands’ End, Inc. (“Lands’ End”) to the Registrant’s stockholders, as a result of which, Lands’ End separated from the Registrant. The Lands’ End Plan subsequently terminated the option to invest in shares of Common Stock under the Lands’ End Plan. In accordance with an undertaking made by the Registrant in the 2010 Registration Statement to remove by means of a post-effective amendment any securities that remain unsold at the termination of the offering, this Post-Effective Amendment is being filed to remove from registration the 93,026 shares of Common Stock and Plan Interests not heretofore sold pursuant to the 2010 Registration Statement. The 2010 Registration Statement is hereby amended, as appropriate, to reflect the deregistration of such unsold Common Stock and Plan Interests.
