CHICAGO, Aug. 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- R. R. Donnelley & Sons Company (Nasdaq:RRD) announced today that it has been named a 2014 Partner in Transformation by Sears Holdings Corp. RR Donnelley supports Sears Holdings' operations and strategic initiatives by supplying newspaper circulars, direct mail, in-store graphics, and logistics services.

Sears Holdings presented the prestigious Partners in Transformation award to a select group of supplier companies that excel in supporting the transformation of Sears Holdings through innovation around integrated retail and the Shop Your WayTM program.

Lampert, Sears Holdings' chairman and chief executive officer. "Through our continued collaboration, we will be able to more effectively leverage the breadth of our portfolio and the power of our brands to better meet the needs of our Shop Your Way members."
The Partners in Transformation recipients were selected from nominations that were submitted by those Sears Holdings' associates responsible for purchasing decisions.
