Kohl’s has put its media account into review, Adweek has learned. Publicis Groupe’s Zenith has previously held the retailer’s media account for the past nine years.

Sources familiar with the review told Adweek that Kohl’s began the review late last year and sent RFPs to multiple holding companies.
