I have shopped at hot topic since I was 12 and it is just recently that I have stopped. I always liked hot topic, but their prices are a little much and I was not happy the last time I went in their store. I have tourette's and was asked to leave because of my cussing tic. I explained my condition and she let me buy my items and then called security on me because I had a seizure and fell and I was accused of faking by security when I wasn't. She tried to arrest me for not having my ID on me and when that fell through she said I was trying to steal and kicked me out when I had my receipt and there was not a stolen item on my person, in my bag, nor did I try to steal anything at all. That mall cop no longer works there, that employee does not work there, and I refuse to spend another dime at hot topic.

I love this store for all of its unique nostalgia. I wouldnt say i fit in any mold per say i dress many different ways from business attire and heels to combat boots and ripped up skinny jeans. I am a huge lover of Disney and i absolutely love all of the different types of things you can get that are disney related. I also have a 10 year old that loves the super hero world and the funko pop bobble heads and hot topic carries a vast array of different types of them. I know most people used to think its just a "goth or punk" store but its really not. I also love love 💘 the cosmetics,jewlery, and hair products. I super splurge in this store. My whole family loves this store from 35 to 10. So you should def check it out soon.

My local Hot topic is a bit small,but I still love it to death! The workers are always super helpful and nice,and I've never had a bad experience there. I love their chokers and the range of things they have. Their shirts,especially the band and anime shirts,are really good quality. They also have anime figures and bracelets and necklaces,and I love that. I can only go a few times a year,but every time it makes me happy. I've never been mistreated or judged there,and it's very calm there. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this store,at least not for my local one!

I used to love going here but everything is so overpriced even for one bracelet and they changed so much now they have Disney stuff and follow all the trends of Disney, and gaming as well as movies like harry potter, anime and TV shows this place used to be meant for band merch and heavy metal stuff I am not talking about todays "heavy metal" I am talking about like megadeth, led zeppelin kinda stuff from goth to punk it was more dark it changed a lot I still go there just for the dragon jewelry they sell their but everything is mainstream and over priced

My local Hot Topic is very small but I love their chokers and their shimmery nail polishes( the ones in the skull bottle) everything is good quality. The only reason why I gave this 4 stores is because the store employees are very rude. But the stuff you find here is awesome :)

I ordered a couple of shirts a for a Christmas present on the Black Friday sale. I ended up receiving the wrong package which contained a much more expensive order than mine but I went ahead and called customer service to get things sorted out. Not only was I on hold for a ridiculous amount of time but the response to all this was I get refunded for what I paid but I won’t get the shirts I ordered and they want the other order back. So now I have no Christmas present for my mom because I’m not paying the ridiculous amount it costs for the shirts at regular price because I’ve now missed out on the sale. What also sucks is how awful the person was about it. I get answering calls can’t be fun but don’t patronize me. I think I’m done with hot topic. I was really really excited to get these shirts for my mom especially at that price but after everything that’s happened I’m done.

I love this place because I am a little goth so I enjoy getting my goth leads in here specially for plus size women. I also love any novelty store they have especially Funko Pops. I enjoy that they have a lot of things that I can't find especially TV shows merchandise and artist like Melanie Martinez merchandise as well. I love that they carry a lot of Disney because that is my favorite thing and to find merchandise that fits me it's amazing

Hot Topic is such a great store because not only are most of their stuff affordable but they always have a sale going on and their Rewards membership is just amazing! Their clothes are always such great quality, they always have a very large variety of clothes to choose from and their jewelry is very long lasting, They also have amazing makeup lines and hair dyes that always never disappoint! I would 100% recommend this to anybody

I'll admit, I never actually went into Hot Topic before until I saw that they had Riverdale merchandise. I decided to go in and take a look, and what they had was pretty good! I ended up buying one of the Pop's shirts as a part of a Halloween costume, and the quality was good. They had a buy 2 get 1 deal going on, which I thought was great, but I ended up just getting one shirt anyway. The employees were very nice!

Hot Topic is my absolute favorite store, and has been for 9 years now! They carry a wide range of band tees & merch, pop culture items, jewelry/body jewelry, hair dye & makeup, and a ton of dark/goth/rock & roll clothing items. Their prices are in the standard range for what items like these go for(there is some stuff that's a little expensive in my opinion but most is priced reasonably), & I've always had good outcomes for quality. I have always had a good experience in store and online. I'm a rewards member and you get $5 rewards for spending so much money, $5 to spend for your birthday, and they're always having great sales!
I'm pretty sure 75% or more of my closet is nothing but items from Hot Topic, and I'm perfectly okay with that.

Does anyone else wished that hot topic was easier to walk through? It's always so small and crowded.
