The famous Trump Taj Mahal Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City is currently undergoing a liquidation sale. As we all know, the failing property was bought by Hard Rock International, who will be completely renovating it and reopening. Before the renovations can be started, everything within the Taj Mahal needs to go. Buyers will be able to get their hands on almost everything from the hotel, including the crystal chandeliers, furniture and even some of the casino equipment.
Taj Mahal – Everything Must Go
The liquidation sale at the Taj Mahal began on Thursday morning, the 6th of July 2017. Almost everything within the hotel and casino is for sale. The only notable exception is that anything that has the Trump name on it will not be sold. In addition to this, all of the casino’s slot machines have been removed, along with many of the gaming tables.
The Taj Mahal was built back in 1990 by President Donal Trump. It reportedly cost $1.2 billion to construct, but it ran into financial troubles and was eventually closed down. The property was then bought by Hard Rock for $50 million, which is quite a bargain. However, Hard Rock plans on spending $500 million on renovations. Th current plan is for the hotel and casino to be reopened in 2018, on Memorial Day weekend.
Taj Mahal Sale Offers Great Deals
The liquidation sale will take place over 60 days in Atlantic City and is expected to attract hundreds of people each day. Hard Rock says people should expect long lines, as they will not let everyone into the property at the same time. Roughly 50 shoppers will be allowed in at a time.
Some of the expected costs include between $15-25 for a chair from a guestroom, $3 for a lamp, $8 for clothes and irons from the hotel. If you’re looking for something more memorable, the poker tables are for sale, with a nine-person table costing $550 and a 10-person table costing $650.
