Ok, here goes the awaited controversy. HOT TOPIC IS NOT A "GOTHIC" STORE!!!! Goths blah blah blah original clothes. Media garbage blah blah blah. Sell out blah blah blah. There you go. The controversy that goes with anything related to HOT TOPIC.

Yes, your store is like four Hot Topics combined into one with fancier decor. Thanks.

*edit addition* I forgot why I was commenting. When I do a Hot Topic Search, your creation is on the fifth page. Seriously, the search engine for this site is less than ideal. Yours should be the first item to come up, none of the others were even as relevent. *end edit*

Well, Hot Topic's slogan is "all about the music", not all about the goth, so they don't claim to be a goth store. I find it amusing the sales clerks, usually so obviously shop somewhere else, since what they are wearing tends to be better than what's on the walls/shelves. Compared to what stores are available in most malls or cities, however, obviously the impression is that they are gothic. It certainly gives goth/punk kids a place to work, where they aren't going to be told their attire is "inappropriate for work". Elitists are funny.

I agree with ____Disease!
I HATE it when people say Hot Topic is a goth store! I will admit to going there a few times. Anyways, it's mostly just cheap crap in there. Besides, does anyone want me to start the famous hour-long lecture about how 'goth' isn't a style? Um, I'd better just shut up and post this before I get myself into trouble with the mods that look over these posts. :0

I'm a hot topic employee and ths tickles me to death.
Can't be a busniess if you don't sell out :D
or else its more of a
"look at us we have cool things but ofcourse you can't buy it because were the only ones truly into it" kind of thing.

well, at least this includes the sign! thanks

my personal life can be supported by veiwing this video: and others on my youtube page. I believe there's a few building tutorials there aswell. I create rather sporadically, so excuse me if I'm gone from this website for months or years at a time.

This is great! I've had the sign for two years or more but never got around to actually making the store! Now with OFB, H&M, & Teen Stuff as well as all my Goth stuff Now they will have somewhere to shop! This is loads better than our local HT, which is barely more than a hole in the wall.
