Trump's former Taj Mahal casino contents can be yours

Trump's former Taj Mahal casino contents can be yours”

An employee of a liquidation company waits for customers at the former Trump Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Thursday July 6, 2017, moments before a sale of the casino hotel's contents begins.

In 2009 Trump chose to cut ties with Atlantic City after testing times for the local economy and Carl Icahn purchased the Taj Mahal Casino before earlier this year Hard Rock International bought the site for a mere $50 million, a fraction of what Trump had to pay and plans to open a brand new gaming venue in May 2018.

Furniture, poker tables, grand pianos, art and even its famous crystal chandeliers that Trump purchased from Austria will be among the items up for grabs.

The liquidation sale will run Monday through Friday from 10 a.m.to 7 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m.to 12 p.m. until everything is completely sold out. But within a year it had filed for bankruptcy, crippled by choking debt. Reporting directly to Jon Lucas, COO for Hard Rock International, Harkness' appointment supports continued momentum surrounding the entertainment destination's opening in the summer of 2018. In March 2017, Trump investor pal and then-owner Carl Icahn sold the property to the Hard Rock for $50 million.

Shoppers browsed the collection with hopes of buying just a little piece of what was once called "The 8th Wonder of the World".
