I don't go in here that often but when I do I'm shopping for band t-shirts or just browsing their unique collection of novelties! A pretty cool store.

My teen loves this store but there prices kinda choke it out. Bought several pairs of pants there and they wore out fast. The band tees are awesome .

I like Hot Topic but don't shop here as much since I've gotten older. I still enjoy their brand of raunchy humor and a lot of their products, though.

Great store but sometimes overwhelming. I like that they always have cartoon characters on most of their clothes and they have awesome candies to try

Seems a bit of a less classy store than most, very punk-teenager kind of style. Accessories and random gifts there are a bit high for what they are

I've been obsessed with this store since 2002. It was the only store in my area where I could finally say, "oh, I really like this! It's DIFFERENT!" I still shop their all the time.

I have loved this store for years, although, I do wish they had more unique items like they did in the past. I love their movie themed stuff though.

I typically like the merchandise offered but it tends to get really pricey fairly quick and there's beginning to be less band merchandise offered which is a great downside for me.

This is a fun store to find pop culture items such as My Little Pony t shirts or Big Bang Theory merchandise. There are lots of t shirts for whatever band your into at the moment.

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