The group currently works on digital advertising with incumbent Walker Media, and other digital specialists for online projects, but has no long-term partnership with a digital agency. The review does not affect the relationship on offline media between Walker Media and DSGI.
The retailer had a total billings figure of £83m last year with less than a million spent on internet advertising, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Elizabeth Fagan, group marketing director at DSGI, said the group was considering a number of options including consolidating the work into one digital agency or moving the bulk of the work in-house.
