Harrah’s Tunica announces June 2 closure
Tunica’s only true resort property, Harrah’s, announced March 26 that it will close June 2, throwing about 1,300 employees out of work. Three-quarters of those employees are Mississippians, with “something less than 400” living in Tunica, according to Chamber of Commerce CEO Lyn Arnold.
The announcement is another blow to a county that recorded the state’s highest rate of unemployment in February, 17.3 percent.
Company officials cited increased competition in the market, where 48 states now have some form of gaming.
