Commercial Appeal to Cut Home Delivery in Arkansas


From The Memphis Commercial-Appeal will begin rolling back its home delivery to subscribers west of the Mississippi in about a month, a spokesman said Tuesday.

Those affected can still read a replica of the print product at the Commercial-Appeal's Web site, Lou Lambert, consumer sales and marketing manager said. The paper is also working out the details on how it will distribute papers for single-copy sales.

"We are trying to put together a plan to continue single-copy sales in areas where we hope to continue or increase single-copy sales," because of the reduction in home delivery, Lambert said. "We are committed to a plan to provide single-copy papers to people who previously had delivery out there."

The paper will continue home delivery to West Memphis and Marion. It has 5,761 subscribers in Arkansas, of which between 2,000 and 2,300 will be affected, Lambert said. The remaining subscribers are in the two cities where home delivery will continue. The Commercial-Appeal's total circulation is about 184,000 on Sundays and 150,000 during the week, Lambert said.
