The International Falls Journal and North Star Publishing will close all its operations at the end of June, with the last edition of The Journal published on June 24.

Like many businesses this past year, the impact of the pandemic on The Journal and North Star Publishing has been dramatic. These challenges, when combined with other difficult economic trends, have forced us to make this difficult decision.

We thank the employees for their tremendous work this past year, and the community for its many years of support.
