Barnes & Noble Seeking New Ad Agency
Page 1 of 1
The agency search comes a little more than a month after Weiss, Whitten, Stagliano in New York launched a multimedia campaign.
A Barnes & Noble spokeswoman was quoted as saying she believes Weiss will not participate in the review, but declined to elaborate on details behind the split.
Media buying for Barnes & Noble is handled by VSM Media in New York; that is not part of the review.
Barnes & Noble, the nation's No. 1 book retailer, is still No. 2 in online selling behind Amazon.com, Ad Age said. When barnesandnoble.com was launched in May 1997, company officials told investment analysts they expected to be the leading online bookseller within a year.
Foote, Cone & Belding in San Francisco has the Amazon.com account.
