BOSTON Havas' Arnold here is out of the review for Talbots' estimated $20 million ad account, as the retailer prepares to hear pitches from four agencies, per sources.
Set to present to the Hingham, Mass.-based client the week of Nov. 9 are: independent The Richards Group in Dallas; Publicis Groupe's Publicis and The Kaplan Thaler Group, both in New York; and Omnicom Group's GSD&M Idea City in Austin, Texas, sources said. A decision is slated for on or around Nov. 12.
Talbots, you can call off the review. The Sherman Foundation has your new tagline: Talbots. For women that want to look that way.
