ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - (AP) -- The owners of the Trump Plaza casino in Atlantic City say they expect to shut it down in mid-September.

Trump Entertainment Resorts tells The Associated Press on Saturday that no final decision has been made yet on the boardwalk casino. But the company says it expects the casino to close its doors Sept. 16.

Notices warning employees of the expected closing will go out to the casinos 1,000-plus employees Monday.

If Trump Plaza closes, Atlantic City could lose a third of its casinos and a quarter of its casino workforce in less than nine months.

The Atlantic Club closed in January, Showboat is closing next month, and Revel might do likewise if a buyer can't be found in bankruptcy court.
