LIMA – In this – the age of selfies, you might expect someone to come up with this idea.
The Lima Mall hosted “Selfie University” in the mall.
They settled next to American Eagle in the former Victoria’s Secret location.
This is where you can take your photographic imagination to a whole new level with various backgrounds, professional-grade studio lighting, and accessories for your selfie to rock Instagram, TikTock, or Facebook.
You can choose a Christmas scene, with a decorated tree and a fireplace, a laundry backdrop, a punching bag scene with the phrase “Knock You Out” in the background. There’s even a presidential-looking podium where you can pretend you’re someone pretty important. There is also a selfie you can take in the “Fashion Jail”, complete with iron bars.

The store itself opens to the public at 4 p.m. Thursday with a ribbon cutting scheduled for 4 p.m. Friday.
