Shoppers at a Hemel Hempstead mall were invited to join in the ‘selfie’ craze with a digital photo booth set up to mark the centre’s official Wifi launch.
The town’s Marlowes Shopping Centre has been offering its customers complimentary BT internet connectivity since the start of the year, but held a two-day event filled with gadgetry fun for those still not surfing as they shop.
Last Friday and Saturday, a Wifi lounge area was set up from 10am to 4pm, which featured a photo booth and props to take the perfect selfie. Free print-outs were on offer, as well as the chance to win a Marlowes giftcard worth £100 every hour. A total of 490 people entered the competition, with 12 lucky winners chosen.
Shopping centre director Vince Williams said: “It’s great to be able to officially launch this fantastic service.
“We wanted to ensure that our shoppers can spend time in the centre and still use their mobile phones and tablets.”
