Definitely an acquired taste, this store. It's a bit pricey at times, but they have great deals. Every time I go in, Its buy one get one half off. Then you have the Hot Cash. Spend wisely and it isn't much at all. Before school this year, I picked up $600 dollars worth of clothes for only $400. They gave me 30% of because I fit all my stuff in a back pack. Friendly, fun place for the right people.

I can really go at it with HOT TOPIC because they have a variety of items you could buy. It's one of my favorite to-go store. You can find things from jewery to clothes to merchandise. They usually have "theme section" where one corner of their store will be specifically for Disney and the other for anime. You can also find many merchandise from band like Brinf Me The Horizon to Fall Out Boys , etc.

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.

This store was a great when I was in high school but slowly it's become very commercial and you can't go I and find the things you're looking for. It no longer appeals to the punk, goth, etc. style or hobbies

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.

I used to love this store, they had the most unique things for all kinds of bands and TV shows. Anymore, they went totally mainstream in my opinion. It used to be bands like Mest and Good Charlotte, etc. Now i see Justin Bieber and lady gaga merchandise. It's a complete 180 downhill.

I really like this store. They have merch of obscurities and of pop culture I have two shirts from here and I can say they are of great quality relatively pricey ($24.95 for a T-shirt) and I have heard great things of their Jean quality. Also they have cute pins and other accessories.

I love Hot Topic, and though I am disappointed they went so main stream, its still nice to be able to go there and find 40's period dresses I use them I model. Fun store, great products, and the prices are good on the wallet. If you are looking for nerd merch, this is THE go to store!

I used to love shopping here as a teen...I went through a small "scene" phase and they have the perfect clothes for that style there. Over the past few years they've added a lot of cuter clothes that are more my style now.. only downside is that some of their products are fairly expensive.

Hot topic has changed a lot over the years. i feel like today it accommodates to everyone instead of a certain crowd. body jewelry is almost always buy one get one 1/2 off, along with band tees and other accessories! they even have a rewards system that allows you to earn points to save!

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