Atlantic City's Trump Plaza casino to close its doors Sept. 16

Atlantic City's casino market is about to lose another big property, as the Trump Plaza casino announced plans to shut down mid-September.

If Trump Plaza closes as expected, Atlantic City could lose a third of its casinos and a quarter of its casino work force in less than nine months. The Atlantic Club closed in January, the Showboat is closing next month and Revel may follow suit if a buyer cannot be found in bankruptcy court.

Bob McDevitt, president of the local Unite-HERE union, Atlantic City’s main casino workers’ union, demanded state lawmakers help head off what he called a “pending catastrophe” that will affect the state’s tourism industry and tax collections, according to The New York Times.
