Campbell Mithun Cuts Some Media Staff in Wake of SuperValu Sale

We’ve received word straight from Campbell Mithun itself, which tells us, “As one of many marketing partners affected by the recent sale and restructuring of SuperValu, we subsequently eliminated fewer than ten positions across all levels in our media department last week.” Folks on the Spy line are adding that a few senior members in the Minneapolis-based agency’s media department were affected by the cuts, which happened approximately a week ago. As noted, CM’s staff reduction was directly due to SuperValu recently unloading 877 of its grocery stores including Albertson’s, Jewel-Osco and Acme to AB Acquisition LLC for $100 million and the assumption of $3.2 billion in the former’s debt. In turn,, the grocery/retail brand eliminated 1,100 positions nationwide.

Campbell Mithun has been serving as media agency of record for SuperValu for five years and will continue to work on media efforts for the corporation’s discount supermarket chain, Save-A-Lot, which spans well over 1,000 stores in the U.S. (SuperValu has worked with the likes of Publicis Kaplan Thaler on the creative end).
