Liquidation Sale Underway at Trump Taj Mahal

 

Are you game for an Atlantic City Treasure Hunt?  If so, you may need to empty out the back and trunk of your jeep or maybe even rent a U-Haul, and the sooner the better. This is a casino bonus site, but this time the bonus is an unprecedented opportunity to get your hands on whatever suits your fancy at the former Trump Taj Mahal Hotel and Casino. Not by stealing, but close to it. What’s up for sale is anything and everything currently in the building that’s removable–from towels to TVs, from tchotchkes to chandeliers–all at rock bottom prices. It’s the Trump Taj Mahal Liquidation Sale!

 What the Trump Taj Mahal Liquidation Sale Will Include

 In 2015, former AC Casino magnate, President Donald Trump famously said “I left Atlantic City before it totally cratered.”  But it is his own self-proclaimed “Eighth Wonder of the World,” the former Trump Taj Mahal, to which the words “totally cratered” will soon apply instead. Hard Rock International is counting the days till the Taj edifice is completely emptied of everything in it, so the razing process can begin. Then the transformation into the new Hard Rock Rock Hotel and Casino will get underway. That can’t happen, however, until every nook and cranny of the place is stripped bare of everything in it, which could take as long as two months.

All together, there are between 20,000 and 30,000 items. So even if you know what you want, or think you know, count on spending the better part of a day to snag your “treasures.” First, you could be waiting on line for hours just to get inside. Then you will have to wade through the massive array of merchandise and, lastly, wait on another long line for the cashier.

Also, it may take a lot more willpower than most casino gamblers have to stick to the plan to buy only what you came to buy or actually need. You’ll be surprised to see stuff you never thought in a million years you would actually be buying. Yet here you are, deciding on first sight that you absolutely must have it!

Bargains Galore

If you recently moved or are about to move and need items for your home, the Taj liquidation sale is a great place to stock up. Why settle for Kmart, Target, or Home Depot when your home can be furnished or decorated with a piece of history from the Taj. Beds, lounge chairs, TVs, mirrors, pictures, lamps, and more are all available, so take your pick. According to early reports, comfortable chairs are going for a mere $35, mirrors for $20, and lamps for as little as $12 apiece. Smaller items for the kitchen or bathroom are in plentiful supply, too. Coffee makers don’t last forever (as I know all too well from experience), so buying an extra one is an excellent idea. And no one can have too many fluffy white towels!

Big Ticket Items, Too

Or, if money is no object, go ahead and indulge yourself. Where else can you get a poker table in perfect condition for $600? Probably nowhere. And if you want the dining room for your special occasion parties to be the talk of the town, there’s nothing like a Trump chandelier to arouse your guests’ oohs and ahhs. But you will need deep pockets for one of those. The less elaborate chandeliers are available for $7,500, while the most elaborate would set you back $35K.

Finding the Items You Want and Getting Them Home

The Trump Taj Mahal Liquidation Sale is just getting started,. So for now, the sale is confined to a few floors only. The suites on Floors 46-50 have been transformed into furniture showrooms, while smaller items are on display on the Main Floor. As the sale continues, bargain hunters will be given access to other floors.

Now that you know what you can get at the Trump Taj Mahal liquidation sale, if you want to take advantage, better figure out how you’re going to haul all this stuff home. This isn’t Macy’s. There is no delivery service.

Not for Gamblers Only

The Taj hasn’t seen such a massive turnout of happy campers since the casino’s heyday. The media reported that on Thursday, July 6, day 1 of the sale, hundreds of people were lined up for hours, even before the building opened its doors at 10 a.m. Many of them were not locals either. The crowd was an eclectic mix of folks from all walks of life–former Taj employees and players, along with non-players also in search of a bargain. Some traveled long distances to get there, including from out of state. The term “generation gap” was also meaningless in this context, as senior citizens, millennials, and everyone in between all showed up for the same reason—to practice the “art of the steal.” One brazen visitor even took the term “liquidation” literally and used the bathroom facilities in one of the suites to take a shower!

What’s Not For Sale

By the way there are some items that you may be hoping to find at the liquidation sale that you won’t find. There are no items at all that bear the TRUMP name. All of those have already been removed from the premises.

How Long Will the Trump Taj Mahal Liquidation Sale Continue?

Shoppers are being told that the sale will last 60 days. But ultimately, it all depends on how fast all of the items are snapped up. So are you better off going now or waiting a while in the hope the price of something you want drops even lower? It’s hard to say. On the one hand, and especially if you’re on a budget, it makes sense to think before you buy and not act too impulsively since nothing is returnable. On the other hand, nobody is going to hold anything for you either while you’re trying to make up your mind. Everything is first come, first served. Or, in other words, maybe a lot sooner than predicted, the best buys will be GOING, GOING–GONE. A word to the wise–$50 TVs were the hot commodity on day 1. So if you want one, the time to get it is today.

Summary

The Trump Taj Mahal never did come through with an online casino. But now, 10 months after the land-based casino closed permanently, surprise, surprise. NJ casino players are now being offered a bonus beyond their wildest dreams. It’s the opportunity of a lifetime, not only to refurbish your home for a fraction of what it would cost you ordinarily, but to have a lasting memento of a bygone era that Atlantic City will never experience again. Welcome to the Trump Taj Mahal Liquidation Sale!
