Harveys owner in talks over UK media

Steinhoff, which owns furniture stores Harveys and Benson for Beds, is talking to agencies about its media business across the UK.

RP2, an independent media agency, is the incumbent on the account.

McCann Manchester won the Harveys creative account in May last year, when it was reported to be worth £20m.

Über previously handled the business since 2013 when it picked up the account from George & Dragon.

Steinhoff did not return Campaign’s requests for comment.
