Best store in the world. Unfortunately they only have a couple in my state. If you need it. They have it. Hair dye, band shirts, body jewelry, costumes, EVERYTHING. It's the main store I go to in order to buy my stuff and I would have love to work there.

I LOVE looking in there, keyword looking. Everything is extremely pricey. You can easily find similar items that they sale on Amazon, Ebay, etc. They have great variety and, sometimes, they have good clearance sales. Being plus-size, they rarely have anything in store that could fit bigger people. While they may have good variety sometimes they don't.

This is definitely an interesting place to go. They have t-shirts featuring famous movies, bands and TV shows. They also have glow-in-the-dark nail polish which I'm absolutely in love with. It's not a store with bright colors though. It's very dark but I did buy these cute Harry potter pajama pants for my bf from there. They also sell stuff from Frozen there

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!

My all time favorite store! You get rare clothing here you don't find anywhere else that suits your fandom. Really cute clothes here! I don't like the gothic clothes, but the cute ones match me best! I just wish it wasn't so expensive, but I guess being in a mall makes things more expensive. I love it when it has sales though so I can get good deals.

One of my favorite stores of all time! I refuse to get my gauges anywhere else! They took it out of my local mall and I nearly cried. Great place for all of my band merch and cute dresses. There is not a time I have walk out of hot topic empty handed. Totally in love with this store! If I had enough money, I would buy just about everything inside!

I love the merchandise because there are SO many different fandoms included in the store. However, it lost a star because the prices are sometimes stupidly high and when I've bought some merchandise, it either broke after one use (Maleficent bracelet) or faded (Beauty & the Beast iPhone case).

I love Hot Topics idea, and what they stock, but .. . a lot of their products are such poor quality, for such a high price I can't handle shopping their anymore. On top of it, they've slowly pulled away from the Gothic community (their original target customers) and pulled towards the preps and hipsters, which made me stop going there entirely.

I love hot topic so so much! No matter how many times I've tried to to go in there when I'm at the mall, I always end up there!!! Sometimes I say to myself I won't waist more than $60 but I spend more than $110! Haha I just really love this store

Hot topic is a towned down version of Spencer's and I love both. Yeah it's gotten a little scene they used to be more metal more goth but it's still cool. Their just with the times. Alot of people talk smack but it's respectable. I still love it

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