Top definition
A warehouse or small business that serves as a front for the barter and sale of stolen, or "hot" goods. Once relatively common in the northern metropolitan areas of America(c. late 19th century-late 20th century), these shops have all but vanished, due in large part to the overall weakening of organized crime.
"My connection in Brooklyn gave me the address of a hot-shop that sells cigarettes and booze at less than half the regular retail price!"
