Hot Topic is always a hit or miss for me. Sometimes they have really good items and sometimes they don't I wish they had more band tees and we less cluttered. One thing that would be great is if they made the stores bigger! I love that there is always a good deal to snatch up.

This store carries merchandise from just about any movie, band, TV show, or characters you could possibly think of. This is the go-to store to find any of your "inner-geek" products. I absolutely love their t-shirts, even though they can be pricey. Overall, it's a great store.

Great store to go to if you're looking for band merch of TV show merch. They also have music and jewelry. They sell backpacks and costumes too. While they are a bit on the expensive side, it is totally worth it because most of the stuff they sell cannot be found anywhere else.

Honestly, I haven't shopped at Hot Topic in, well, years... I do not personally wear anything from there anymore besides band shirts and some body jewelry. They do have a lot of options on brand and clothing. But I like them for their band shirt selections and body jewelry.

I honestly usually love all the new pop culture stuff they have for sale! they have pretty good deals on pants and body jewelry often as well. And their customer service is phenomenal and i love that they are able to present themselves however they would like too at work!

They have many items that you can't find anywhere else. I find myself in this store during the holiday's. I used to really love the store when I was in more of a dark phase, but now I don't really buy much from it. They have some great band merch and body jewelry though.

Good place to get hair dye, they carry a few brands. The body jewelry selection is pretty good as well though it's a bit pricey compared to similar stores. The rest of it is not really my style anymore, but the selection of band/graphic/character tops is pretty extensive

I love hot topic, but I liked it a lot more when I was in high school. When I loved to have crazy outfits. I still go in there for some band shirts, only if they're on sale though. The one thing I love about their store is how they let their employee express their selves.

This is a great store to buy band merchandise from. They also do Disney character items, Pokémon items. The prices can be a little high on some things. I think the downside is the stores are always to small & they play the music a little loud in some of the stores to the point you can not hear what another person is saying...

I like the old stuff better :( back when it had fun alternative clothes and not just superheroes and cartoons. I loved all the cute skull stuff. I am no big into pop culture and miss the cute clothes of my teens. Giving it a 4 star only for the old stuff they used to have.

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