“My name is Liam.  Myself and John Phillips created the idea of the ‘Grainger Selfie’.


We wanted a way of introducing all our followers on Twitter to the Grainger Market.  As most of the shops inside do not have profiles on Twitter or even a website, we thought it would be a great way of giving our followers (which is over 6,000 combining Oliver's and Sloppy Joe’s) a virtual tour of the market, advertising the diverse range of shops within the area.


I 've been taking a 'selfie' of myself in front of a different shop for over three weeks now.  We have had a fantastic response - #graingerselfie has started a trend.  We've had plenty of retweets and favourites daily, we've even had customers and shop owners tweeting their own selfies!


I really enjoy doing it and I think I'm about half way through, hoping to see more selfies from everyone else to!”


You can see some of Liam’s selfies below!





Liam works at Sloppy Joe’s Deli (Unit 30, Alley 1).


You can see some of the selfies he’s taken on this page.  We’ll update the photos over the coming weeks.
