Rangoon - 2019-04-06 Oh God, it's been around for almost 30 years...
The Mothership - 2019-04-07 This store was around well before 1993, it just had different names; only later did Hot Topic consolidate these places. In 1980s Vancouver, Washington, it was called 'Spencer Gifts', in Vancouver Mall and also Clackamas Town Center (the other big suburban mall in the Portland, OR metro area).
fedex - 2019-04-07 when I was a kid we would sneak into the back of spencer gifts and laugh at the sex stuff
themilkshark - 2019-04-07 Spencer Gifts is a competitor, there's a big market for trash
glasseye - 2019-04-08 In the 90s Clackamas Town Center definitely had a Hot Topic, and I think a Spencer's.
Marlon Brawndo - 2019-04-09 I remember Spencer's Gifts. I also remember the discovery of penis shaped pasta was hilarious when I was in high school.
The Mothership - 2019-04-11 I remember the titty posters and the novelty 'over the hill' baldness pills.
Ugh - 2019-04-07 i give this 1 spirit star because i vainly hoped someone would turn to the camera and say "it's hot" and maybe hi-five their friend
Ugh - 2019-04-07 i forgot how much i liked to say hot topic like hot pocket
Marlon Brawndo - 2019-04-09 Ah, skateboards. The hallmark of a desperate company trying to appear cool to kids in the 90s.
