We Hear: Barkley, Big Lots Parting Ways

Big Lots

Just a few weeks after making some “staff adjustments,” word from sources familiar with the matter is that Kansas City-based agency Barkley will lose client Big Lots “in the coming month or two”–though they’re still currently the brand’s agency of record. The employee-owned ad agency won AOR duties for the closeout retailer just over a year ago and was tasked with handling brand strategy, broadcast, print, web strategy and in-store executions. Big Lots, which is based in Columbus, OH and operates over 1,400 stores in the US of A and Canada, previously worked with various agencies on a project basis before consolidating creative at Barkley at the beginning of last year.
