ATLANTIC CITY — Fans of the former Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort will have a chance to take home a piece of what’s left inside before it’s gutted to make way for the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

Furniture, poker tables, grand pianos, artwork and its famous chandeliers will be among the merchandise when the new owners hold a liquidation sale beginning 10 a.m. Thursday.

The sale will continue until everything is sold, according to a statement from the vendor, National Content Liquidators. It will open to shoppers from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.

The Taj opened in 1990 as the largest casino in the world and the self-dubbed “eighth wonder of the world.” It was the city’s highest-grossing casino until Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa opened in 2003. The Taj officially closed Oct. 10 after multiple bankruptcies and a labor dispute with its union workers.

It will be redeveloped as the city’s first Hard Rock Hotel and Casino and is set to open by Memorial Day 2018. Demolition on the outside facade is set to begin later this summer.
