I use to go to this store a lot for dark edgy things such as fish net stockings or leggings, Spiked chokers, wide drop down pants or just something darkness falls into; this was the store to go to. It's personal taste and I like how they can give that to customers.

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.

I have a long history with Hot Topic. It has almost everything to do with pop-culture. You can find Harry Potter Items, Funko Pops, Jewelry, Diverse Clothing etc. I have worked for Hot Topic for little over a year now and I enjoy the time I have spent there. We always have sales going on. I think of Hot Topic as one of those stores you just have to visit when going to a mall. Our store works hard to provide amazing costumer service. If you enjoy a diverse music scene then definetly check it out!
I absolutely love this store. I have shopped at Hot Topic since I was 12 and really into my scene phase(thank god it was just a phase). Over the years Hot Topic has started to sell more gothic and darker style clothing which I love. I absolutely love they're skinny jeans, they fit perfectly and have lots of great style options. I would say at least 85-90% of my wardrobe is from this store. The employee's are very nice and helpful, I always find myself getting into lengthy conversations with them. The only one thing I don't like about this store is the amount of pop culture stuff they sell, like I get that they're trying to be popular with other groups of people but I wish they wouldn't try so hard with the pop culture stuff.

Hot Topic is definitely not what it used to be 10 years ago when I started getting into my phase for the darker things in life. I really enjoyed Hot Topic in the past because they always had great quality pieces that were staples in my wardrobe. However, in the last few years it has become a pop culture store that sticks to the teenie bopper items that young kids are really into. From time to time I find some really nice clothing items that I can wear to work or out and about, but alas it's sometimes hard to find. Hot Topic's clothing quality has been decreasing in recent years and the prices for it are extremely high. Though if you are like me, you can get some fantastic deals online. If you are into band t-shirts, pop culture items, or into the whole emo/scene phase you will love this store. However, for those of us who have grown apart from it you may be able to find some pieces from time to time. A third of my closet is from here, but I keep finding it more difficult each time I go to find items that suit me and my style.

MY FAVORITE STORE EVER! I can find pretty much any style here. Whether it's band tees and skinny jeans or pretty dresses and flats they have it all! I will always shop here both in person and online.

I have always liked going to this store when I get a chance to go to the mall. I love their dresses and accessories. The only problem I had were their bottoms sizing. Every time I wanted to shop there for pants or shorts everything was too small or too short.
