I like this store and always have. Super easy to find band t-shirts and clothes for fun holidays (St Patrick's, Halloween, etc). Plus they sell awesome everyday clothes and body jewelry. The makeup isn't too bad either!

They have cheap band merch, and very unique clothing styles. More gothic/punk attire but over the years have been adding justin beiber merch, and other "pop" artists. But still love going there for their unique jewelry.

Don't really find anything in this store for me. I did however buy my kids backpacks their this year. They were pricey but so worth the look on their faces. It was two ninja turtle backpacks that were not found anywhere else. So if you are looking for rare products I recommend you check the store out.

Most of my wardrobe consists of clothes from this store. I love the variety in Hot Topic. It's great for finding band tees, pop culture items, cartoon/Disney-related items and so much more! Plus their annual $15 off $30 hot cash sale is a great deal! That's when I do most of my major shopping from here.

They also sent me a $45 off $90 coupon! There great!

I love shopping at Hot Topic for my daughters birthdays, Christmas and back to school things.
Most of the time you can catch some really good sales going on. Plus they have band t-shirts, funky leggings, tights that my girls love. Also you can find plushies and random items you don't think you'd need, but you want them anyway...all under one roof. I've always found the employees to be very helpful as well.

I loved hot topic as a teen. They have a lot of great stuff in there. Band tees, hair dye, Disney merchandise. Anything any alternative teen could want. I mainly but hair dye from them now that older, but I only purchase my pyramid belts from them. I love the Disney stuff they have too.

During my misspent youth, Hot Topic was the go-to store for all things "alternative". These days I stop by for nostalgia but don't know most of the characters featured on clothing, jewelry, etc. They're always good for Halloween stuff, piercing jewelry, and non-traditional hair dye colors.

I love hot topic! You can always find some hot items there. Especially the character tees and the cute little character backpacks. My best friend and I used to always shop here when were were in high school. I'd love to get one in my area so i can get in there and load up on kool items.

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