Hot Topic is appropriately named by selling items that are "hot now" and super trendy.
They have something for everyone, and no everything is not all goth. We've purchased tees and backpacks there for our 6 year old daughter. My husband and I love their quirky tees.
The staff is super sweet, and the clearance section is worth the stop. Nice location too.
PROS: Sweet staff.
CONS: Small spaces.
Hot Topic is a gothic style store. They sell black clothing, and play gothic music like Marilyn Manson and such. It is really a teen store. If you are not into the "freak" style, you probably wouldn't like this place. But alot of people do. If you have piercings, you may like it also. They have alot of different body jewlery for different piercings like tongue, navel, labret, ears, and some others. Beware parents when you enter this store, the staff may scare you a bit. They tend to be into what they sell. Pink mohawks and quarter sized peircings just dont seem to impress the older croud.
THis store is a very good store. It is generally put more twoards the pumks but it is pretty neat if you can get yourself over the boundry and just walk in there. THey are moderatly over priced but they also are a one of a kind store. I like this store very much and i would recomened a lot of people to it.
I dont care for this store much, my daughters love this store, and because I purchase the stuff they wantthey have good prices. They have really good clearance about once a month we go when they have all their clearance at an additional 50% off! That is a really good deal! The store isnt very big and that would be my only complaint, its just not my type of store, but for my daughters its a really good store, and its good on my wallet!
