Giant Eagle has awarded the Chicago office of Young & Rubicam its creative and media planning duties after a review.

WPP Group's Y&R partnered with sister shop Maxus in Chicago to pitch the estimated $15-20 million account, according to Progressive Grocer's sister publication, Adweek. Y&R and Maxus succeed The Richards Group, a Dallas-based independent that opted not to defend the business, Media buying duties remain at RJW Media in Pittsburgh.
