A clothing store. A place to buy clothed goods.

1) a place where you cant buy clothing that is lighter than black.

2) a store that is very dark inside...you must navigate yourself in there with a light...but it usually repulses people inside that work there
1) hot topic employee: hi how can i help you?
customer: umm yea where's your white shirts?
hot topic employee: get out! get the fuck out!

2) girl: my oh my it sure is dark in here...
guy: yah gimme a flashlight.
hot topic employee: turn off that damn light!

A place that I don't go to because I shop for REAL clothing.
Hot Topic sucks, even though they have that 1-Up Mushroom T-shirt. Let's go to Anchor Blue.

Hot Topic sells ugly neon hoodies with cat ears, tacky cheetah studded pants made for fat people, cheap makeup, and ridiculous bows that don't even stay in your hair. You can sometimes find cute pins/backpacks/band tees/ect., but for the most part it sucks. At least Hollister is good quality, and doesn't look ridiculous. Everyone in there stares at you with hatred if you aren't decked out in scene gear and have black eyeliner caked on.
*kids at mall*
Jessica: Hey, let's look in Hot Topic!
Ally: Ok, just make sure the horny bi girls don't try to grab your ass!

A place that sells clothes.
People can shop at Hollister AND Hot Topic, just like the person writing this definition. It's not a place for posers to shop, just like Abercrombie isn't a place for posers to shop. If you like their clothes, and not Abercrombie/Hollister's, you shop there, and that doesn't make you a poser, people.
But some people shop there to seem 'unique', and it's just as unique as shopping at A+F. In a nutshell, it's a store that sells clothes, usually considered 'goth' or 'emo'.
I have a few pairs of clothes that I bought at Hot Topic, I wear them sometimes, therefore, I must be a poser, right? Wrong.
