Contrary to rumors on social media and other media outlets, The Pine Bluff Commercial is not closing down.

“Changes are being made with our printing press, and printing will be outsourced, but we will continue to print and deliver papers five days a week,” Jennifer Allen, publisher, said Thursday.

“We would like to thank our local communities for all of the support you show our staff here at The Pine Bluff Commercial, and we look forward to continuing to serve Pine Bluff and the surrounding communities just as we have for the past 138 years,” she said.
