A store that sells clothing and accessories for those not inclined to shop at places like Abercrombie and Fitch or Hollister. They sell a bit darker variety of items, all of which are just as over-priced as before-mentioned retailers.
Gothic Girl #1: Eww..look at all those preppies coming out of A & F with their 20$ T-Shirts and $80 jeans.
Gothic Girl #2: I know! We'll never be as stupid as them. Now let's go shop at Hot Topic!
(after shopping) Gothic Girl #1: I found a lot of great stuff in there today!
Gothic Girl #2: yeah, me too. I just love my new $5 shoelaces, $70 skirt, and $80 pair of sneakers!
