This has been my favorite place to buy clothes since I was 11. And o find even though I'm almost 30 the clothes never go put of style! My only wish is they had more available on bigger sizes! But I'd definitely recommend to all my friends and family!

One of my favorite stores of all time! I refuse to get my gauges anywhere else! They took it out of my local mall and I nearly cried. Great place for all of my band merch and cute dresses. There is not a time I have walk out of hot topic empty handed. Totally in love with this store! If I had enough money, I would buy just about everything inside!

I love hot topic so so much! No matter how many times I've tried to to go in there when I'm at the mall, I always end up there!!! Sometimes I say to myself I won't waist more than $60 but I spend more than $110! Haha I just really love this store

I love the merchandise because there are SO many different fandoms included in the store. However, it lost a star because the prices are sometimes stupidly high and when I've bought some merchandise, it either broke after one use (Maleficent bracelet) or faded (Beauty & the Beast iPhone case).

Hot topic is a towned down version of Spencer's and I love both. Yeah it's gotten a little scene they used to be more metal more goth but it's still cool. Their just with the times. Alot of people talk smack but it's respectable. I still love it

I love Hot Topics idea, and what they stock, but .. . a lot of their products are such poor quality, for such a high price I can't handle shopping their anymore. On top of it, they've slowly pulled away from the Gothic community (their original target customers) and pulled towards the preps and hipsters, which made me stop going there entirely.

It can get very expensive. About $25 per clothing item, if not more. The quality is typically very good. They are definitely the go to place if you are looking for some band merch, or even Disney stuff. The best time to hit up this store is during their buy one, get one half off sales. They usually offer "Hot Cash" at that time to use later.

It's a very unique place where I feel that I don't get judged for what I wear. Most of the things are very pretty and legit. The sales they give out online really helps pay for shipping. Honestly there are many interesting things here to buy.

Hot Topic is only good for Disney merch, band t-shirts, and novelty items. It went from a goth store to a stupid novelty store really fast. And their prices are way too high but I guess that doesn't matter because only teenagers who's parents buy everything for them shop here anymore. They do have great sales but the prices are too high.

I love love love this store! Great store to buy band merchandise & music, I always walk in this store and walk out with a t-shirt or any collectible items I might like! Some stuff is expensive but all worth it in the end! Such an awesome store! 😍😍😍
