Strip’s shuttered Sahara to hold massive liquidation sale

LAS VEGAS Sahara Hotel & Casino, the Las Vegas Strip icon that closed last month, is holding what might be described as the world’s biggest estate sale.

More than 600,000 items from the 59-year-old resort will be up for sale starting Thursday in an everything-must-go liquidation.

 Virtually everything at the property will carry a price tag and will be sold as-is, from beds and lamps to gaming tables and extension cords. Just about the only thing not up for sale is the 1,720-key resort’s roller coaster.

The sale is being coordinated by National Content Liquidators, which sent out approximately 25,000 notices to hoteliers across the United States to advertise the sale. The event is open to the public, with a US$10 admission fee charged for the first four days. The sale will last for 60 days, or until everything is gone.

More than 1,000 employees lost their jobs when owner SBE Entertainment Group shut the legendary but past-its-prime property in May.
