Albertson's shifts $50 million in work to Duncan agency

Published on .

Albertson's, Boise, Idaho, shifted $50 million in work for three major supermarket and drugstore brands that are part of American Stores to Duncan & Associates, Santa Monica, Calif., as expected. Duncan, which has long handled Albertson's supermarkets, won the Lucky business from Grey Advertising's West Coast offices. Duncan will handle all Savon stores nationwide, formerly at Lois/EJL, Chicago, and also picked up from Lois all Osco stores except those in the Chicago area, which remain at Lois. Lois also will continue to handle Chicago area Jewel stores. Federal officials last week approved Albertson's purchase of American Stores, creating the nation's No. 2 supermarket and drugstore chain, with annual sales of $36 billion. The increased billings bring Duncan to a $110 million shop and one of the largest independents in southern California.
