Sears turns to O&M for national branding ads

Published on .

Sears, Roebuck & Co., apparently having decided on a refashioning of its "Softer side" campaign for later this year, is expected to give Ogilvy & Mather greater responsibility for national branding advertising, executives knowledgeable of the efforts said. Sears Exec VP-Marketing Mark A. Cohen is scheduled to describe his plans to Wall Street analysts this week. Currently, O&M has the bulk of advertising responsibilities for Sears' hard lines, while Y&R Advertising, New York and Chicago, handles most "Softer side" work.
