Liquor Ad - Spar vs PJ Powers

Liquor Ad - PJ Powers has taken on the Spar Group because Spar used her name in an advertisement for Tops Liquor Stores without her consent.   She is a well-known recovering alcoholic and such publicity will damage her reputation, according to her manager.   Spar said the advertisement was part of a larger campaign incorporating a pajama party theme.  Spar has apologised if the advertisement was offence to anyone.
