Hot Topic is definitely not what it was when I was a teenager back in the stone ages. It used to carry only alternative type of items. Stuff with a rocker edge to it. Now it's filled with fandom stuff. I still like it but it's not as cool as it used to be.

I love shopping at hot topic. They have everything from band merchandise, hair dye, make up, cute clothes and shoes. Everything a goth girl can dream of. It's a bit cheaper to buy online than it is to buy at the store because they have amazing online sales. Hot Topic

I love this store and have for over 10 years. It has tons of variety of things to look at. They could be a bit bigger in the space because any store I've ever gone into I've felt like I was going to knock things over. The prices are not bad at all they range from high to low and they have things for all ages.

Hot Topic I love your little a-line dresses! Here I am in one of your older Little Mermaid print dresses. Wish they were a little cheaper, but I just wait for your 30 or 40% off or clearance sales.

The story where I live has a very homey vibe and the workers always talk to you like you family. I must say the store is for teenagers because there are a lot of non-formal clothing. I have to say my favorite part of the store is how many fandoms are included: rap artists, Dr. Who, Tøp, and more. I do recommend!
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.

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