The folks on the Spy line were spot-on as we’ve received confirmation regarding the status of Compass Point Media’s longtime relationship with hair salon chain, Great Clips. A spokesperson tells us, “Great Clips has ended its 25-year relationship with our Compass Point Media unit. We’re proud of the work we’ve done together over the past quarter century, particularly in developing local connection strategies nationwide. And we wish them continued success.”
During their time together, Compass Point, which currently houses over 125 strategists, analysts and negotiators and also works with clients such as Airborne, Supervalu and General Mills, handled media buying/planning across channels for Great Clips from TV and digital to print and outdoor.
As for where Great Clips’ media duties are headed to next, sources in the know tell us that they’ve now been handed over — minus review — to fellow Minneapolis-based agency, Periscope, though the agency is not commenting on the matter as of yet.
