Two Publicis Groupe agencies have walked away with retailer HHGregg’s advertising account, according to sources.

The Chicago offices of Leo Burnett and Spark SMG will handle creative and media responsibilities, respectively, sources said. HHGregg’s media spending exceeded $105 million last year, according to Nielsen.

The win comes after a review in which the other finalists were DDB in Chicago, Schafer Condon Carter in Chicago and the incumbent, Zimmerman Advertising in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Zimmerman, which had handled both creative and media efforts since 2007, pitched on its own, while the others had media partners.
