People lined up to take home a piece of formerly-Trump owned Taj Mahal Casino in Atlantic City. After years of financial trouble, the casino was sold to Hard Rock International in March and will be completely remodeled.
People flooded the lobby of the Atlantic City Taj Mahal Casino on July 6, 2017, to take home a piece of the former Trump property.
The sale started at 10 a.m. Thursday, and will continue until all items up for grabs are sold.
The sale also features art, grand pianos, poker tables among many pieces of furniture and room fixtures.
Former Taj Mahal employee Dan Liarrl grabbed this decorative, Indian themed wooden horse, which was in the Signature Club at the casino.
This man was able to snag two televisions to take home.
Remains from the casino, such as this poker player, are on sale.
Even the casino's famous chandelier were on sale at the liquidation sale.
President Trump opened the casino in 1990 and proclaiming it the "eighth wonder of the world."
However, it quickly ran into trouble. Within one year of the Taj Mahal's opening, the casino filed for bankruptcy.
Trump ended up cutting ties with Atlantic City in 2009 after losing control of the casino company due to the bankruptcy.
After a contentious strike with the casino's union in October, investor Carl Icahn shut down the casino.
Icahn sold the casino to Hard Rock International in March. The sale was for $50 million, about four per cent of the $1.2 billion Trump invested to open the Taj Mahal.
Hard Rock International plans to completely scrap the Taj Mahal's Indian theme and do a complete makeover of the casino. The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino is set to open next summer.
All items in the sale are on a first come, first served basis.
The sale runs daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and on Sundays from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. The casino is located at 1000 Boardwalk on Virginia Avenue in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
