Definitely the place to get bands shirts an cute little things. It definitely should go back to how it was when I was younger an the outside of the store use to scare me, now it's way to preppy

I’ve always loved Hot Topic! It’s where I go to find a lot of edgy clothes! My favorite style and has such a great atmosphere! I can always depend on finding a cute skirt, top, or piercings!
I absolutely love this store. I have shopped at Hot Topic since I was 12 and really into my scene phase(thank god it was just a phase). Over the years Hot Topic has started to sell more gothic and darker style clothing which I love. I absolutely love they're skinny jeans, they fit perfectly and have lots of great style options. I would say at least 85-90% of my wardrobe is from this store. The employee's are very nice and helpful, I always find myself getting into lengthy conversations with them. The only one thing I don't like about this store is the amount of pop culture stuff they sell, like I get that they're trying to be popular with other groups of people but I wish they wouldn't try so hard with the pop culture stuff.

I love this store. So many cute alternative things from clothes to accessories. They always run great deals. I just wish the salespeople weren't so pushy. Sometimes I don't want that second item for 30% off (or whatever the offer is) and don't want the salesperson to make me feel guilty for not giving in. However today I spent $30 and walked out with 3 pair of earrings for my stretched ears (clearance was buy 1 get 2 free- now that's something I can get behind) and a headband, necklace, and 2 button pins. Not bad for $30. I also got a $15 coupon for later use so it's like I only spent $15 in the long run!

This store is amazing! They have the best things there all the time and always update what they've got. They have a lot of discounts often and perks when you sign up with email and stuff. But things there do tend to cost a bit more , so I don't go as often They always have great jewelry that lasts longer than you'd think. Their shirts are high quality and most of them range from 20-30 dollars each but the have tons of sells throughout the year so a lot of times you can get shirts for less. Their jeans are just flat out amazing! I cannot live without their daring pants and skirts, but they tend to be pricey but are worth the money trust me!!...If i could buy the store i totally would because hot topic is a store you would go crazy in because it is so awesome

This is my sunshine and favorite store! Their anime selection of shirts have helped to enable my addiction. I love the selection of plus sized clothes. I love this company.

When i was younger they had such great clothes and had amazing band merch but now days you can barely find band tees that isn't modern radio music. I hate this store now.

If you're into that punk look and live the punk lifestyle. This is the place to go. They always have awesome deals and have every type of band merch you could ever want!

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