When I was younger I was obsessed with this store and bought many things from there, it's great!
Hot topic is a great alternative store. They offer a large variety of things from band shirts to body jewelry. If you're into the alternative scene this is your go to store.
Love this store, I get all my nightmare before Christmas stuff from shirts to shoes to head phones, they have hands down the best selection of products at really affordable prices. I have found some really amazing pieces of clothing there,
Either in the store or online, I can literally spend a whole afternoon in Hot Topic! I love that I can be having a bad day, and when shop in Hot Topic I can walk out feeling like a new person. They have so much to offer from your favorite comic book, anime, band/music, jewelry, Disney etc. You may think you are alone in a fandom until you walk into a Hot Topic store and see that something you were alone in is on display as a shirt-- it brings joy to your soul! Because you can walk around wearing your fandom and people will actually approach you and say 'omg you like so and so too?!?' BAM! you just made a new friend. I can go on and on, but all in all Hot Topic is great!
Great place if you're looking for band / pop culture merchandise, or some darker looking fashion than what you find in the regular stores in the mall. Make sure to shop around online before buying any of the pop culture items though, I find you can often find a way better deal on websites like amazon. ESPECIALLY on the anime, pokemon, and studio ghibli merch.
The best store ever!! I can barely spend hours in the store and never get tired. The best bands t-shirts you can find and the associates treat you awesome!!
I love so much this site, here I bought all my clothes, and funkos and too much things, is the best in the world
Q & A
Does anyone else wished that hot topic was easier to walk through? It's always so small and crowded.
Ain't most of their clothes black?
What's your go to section at hot topic?
What's your favorite purchase from Hot Topic?
What is another store similar to Hot Topic? Also maybe better on their prices?
