I genuinely love(d) this store. I own several band tees, fandom tees, Hot Topic Pop! vinyl exclusives, buttons, posters ... you get the picture. However, I'm not absolutely THRILLED with this store. They are extremely pricey for the quality (or should I say lack of quality?) of the items you get. The tees rip easily, especially the girl tees (right in the armpits!). If I spend $25 on a T-shirt, I want the image to last more than four washes and the fabric to, you know, stay intact? As for the atmosphere, they can cool it on the screamo music and faux-goth items. Just because everything is black and has chains and is distressed in the knees doesn't make it goth ... and it doesn't justify paying $40.

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 love this store. It's not just for teenagers you can also find nice dresses and tees that are not too dramatic. They have a lot of clothes for young adults, kids, & teens of all styles.

I love their stores sometimes . They have nice products . Some of it is too pricey and I do feel their stores need an update ! It seems like they sale the same
Products from 10 years ago .
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.

Hot Topic is a store that features clothes and accessories mainly for a more edgy, darker aesthetic. Ordering online is very simple and shipping is usually low or free. Shipping is also very speedy.

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

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