I really like this store but sometimes I feel like they're kinda expensive. Their t-shirt sales aren't so bad. I always end up buying something before I leave the store.

Although I feel like this store has went somewhat downhill in recent years, I still find some good deals every now and again. I especially like their Disney selection.

It's an interesting enough store but when you truly want to find something that you know is only going to be in this store, I no longer feel that everyone is welcome like I once thought. It's very uncomfortable in there anymore.

Maybe I'm getting old but the store has deteriorated in the last few years. I used to find unique and fun items, but now you can find a good deal at Target for way less.

This store intimidates me. I'm not really a dark person or like any of the stuff there but if i want a graphic tee for some concert or something Hot Topic is your store!

I used to shop here a lot when I was in high school and it seems to consistently good for that demographic. Reasonably priced with a variety of funky/punk merchandise.

Not my style, but I do enjoy shopping here for pop culture items like Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Disney, etc. Prices are alright, but the items they have are awesome.

I feel like they don't have that much good clothes now then they did when I was younger could be just the age I guess. They are also overpriced on some of their items.

This store is so convenient for people who love anime, cartoons, music, make-up, video games etc. It's awesome and I don't even have any better words to explain it.

I still like Hot Topic! They have some nice jewelry there. Lots of fun little things to buy and a good selection of band tee-shirts if you're looking for that stuff!

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