Hot Topic is my current go to for Nerd gear. They have tons of Doctor Who and Supernatural, and some Sherlock stuff. And they have Zelda and The Walking Dead and Star Wars. HT is seen as this gothic store but now a days when you go in the front half of the store is nerded out and the gothic stuff and the Band merch is all in the back. I love Hot Topic! I can get my Nerd merch and Band merch all in one place.

Hot topic is definitely one of my favorite stores. The best part is they have a variety of pop culture related things. You don't just have to like metal or only wear black to shop there, they have Justin bieber shirts and sell super cute dresses! Their jeans rule and have been redone and now the color lasts super long and the pants stay tight! I love the staff and it's just such a fun place to go

I am a regular hot topic shopper. I love the band merch/tv and anime (pop culture) items. I have to say in all honesty, I do not like the jewelry. Not real silver and I have very sensitive skin so it does irritate. They turn brown and make your skin green and the piercings as well. Every thing else is fine! And customer service has always been the best there!

This store is a great store for those who want to shop a little bit different, you have your anime stuff there and some makeup, a bit vampy, and its a great store to get some super hero stuff at. I have bought stuff from my favorite show, Supernatural and Attack on Titan and even bought some Batman shirts and mask for myself. It's a great store to shop at.

I've been shopping here since I was 13 years old. That being said, a lot has changed, including myself. I love the new jewelry sets and the dresses are the only ones I can find in my particular style. But the prices are piped up a little too much and I wish y'all would just bring back Tripp pants.

Love the graphic tees at the store. Love have even though they have so much inventory it's kind of organized. Their staff is usually very pleasant and they don't bother too much while you shop I personal hate being asked if I need help or given a fake smile again and again.

I absolutely love this store much. I shop at hot topic a lot I go in there every time I go to the mall. Not only do they have band shirts but they have makeup, jewelry, and other graphic tees. They even have alternative fashion if you're not in too all the bands.

Not as good as they used to be, but they have something for everyone. I shop there frequently because it's the only store that has my style of clothing in my area. Quality isn't always the best, and sometimes it's ok. I would recommend shopping here to anyone.

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!

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