I was at the Pines Mall saturday and the subway was closed. So, now all of the eating franchises have gone from there. They had told me they decided to leave because the rent was extremely high and the management would not fix any of the leaks on the roof. There is only a handful of stores left. Looks like we are about to lose a mall in the town. I wish some of these business owners would step up to the plate and talk to the mayor before this town becomes a grady, gouldm or alteimer. This town is losing business right and left.

I go to the mall in Little Rock. It's not a hangout for the local blue gums. Screw Pine Bluff and that mall. Pine Bluff is doomed. Drugs , crime , lazy asses that would rather sit and draw a check than work.
The mall isn't safe for families to go to. Without families , no business in that mall will survive.
The local talent that uses it for a hangout aren't spending money. They go there to steal and cause trouble. Just like any other family oriented business in Pine Dump.
So do like everybody else and spend your money in Little Rock.

You sound that's the whole point. You are suppose to help build up city in which you live think about this if the businesses are closing because creeps like you are to scared to shop where they live and rather make someone else's city Rich, how are they suppose to spend money they can't make. And what kind of check are they getting maybe your jealousy.

Oh, by the way , we just bought all new furniture for our den and going to Little Rock in the morning to pick it up.
Can you figure out "saggin " spelled backwards ?
I bet that's what you are.

We can't get businesses due to a lack of an educated workforce. We can't educate a student that misses school to have multiple children before high school graduation. How do think you can get an education with your legs spread apart so much?

And when you can't get a job that pays $50K a year because you didn't go to school, it's whitey's fault.

"Saggin backwards" !!

lack of education , lack of motivation , lack of reliability , lack of ethics , lack of morals, lack of ambition , the "you owe me attitude" , etc., etc., etc.
I've got 10 more years and I'm bowing out with a full government retirement. I can't wait to leave here.

I have a job that pays more then 50K a year, sorry to hurt your feelings ( not really). You are not very bright. For your information I have Doctorate in something I love and has meaning to many people.
You are a waste of human life.

It is our mayor and the citizens of Pine Bluff they don't care about nothing but name calling.

After reading all of the comments from 2011 through March 2, 2015 I just dont know what to think. I lived in Pine Bluff and the surrounding area all of my life - over 50 years. I have worked in this area for over 30 years - for the same employer all of those years. Living in a high crime, low income area does not mean you cant do something with your life. Its up to you what you make out of life. If you use where you live as an excuse for doing nothing I feel for you. The remarks from a government employee such as the one on this thread scare me. Instead of blasting your town, make it better! Those who "love Little Rock"...Little Rock is no more than a larger Pine Bluff. Make Pine Bluff better!

I used to love to drive to P. Bluff to shop at the mall. Then several members of my family had what I'll call scary experiences there. REALLY scary. I continued to go to the mall but not nearly as often. The last time I was there I felt very unsafe. Someone followed me to the restroom, etc. It was then I noticed how desolate the place was. I got my child and husband and got out of there. I will never go back. It really is sad to see what has happened to South Arkansas since the 70s. I miss the Pine Bluff of my youth.

White guy update for 2018:

I am in Pine Bluff for work, staying by the mall. Man you guys called it back in 2011 when you said the mall was going down. Everything is boarded up, nothing is open in the mall but the theatre and walking through feels dangerous. Was asked for money 4 times. All but one gave me lip when i said no. First time I was ever called a F-ing N-word. Didn't stay long.

From an outsiders perspective thats been here for a week this town needs to be burnt to the ground and start a new. For gods sake Walmart provides "complementary security" day and night. That blew my mind.

I hate going anywhere in Pine Bluff. Gangs and drugs have made it what it is.

Well there should soon be an uptick to the mall, if that Casino goes in across the highway ! Then it will be bumping! But someone will need to hire security to man every door to keep the “saggin” spelled backwards folks out! And I mean all of them out !!! Don’t even allow them on the parking lot! Pine Bluff has gone to Hell in a hand basket because all the white folks is scared of them ! Stupid kids with guns! Well the whites need to arm themselves !
