My dad's are obsessed with hot topic the store. They are into emo/goth clothing and stuff. I was going to buy them some hot topic stuff for Xmas but I've left it too late (last order took 8 weeks to arrive). Does anyone know of a UK equivalent?

Not aware if there is a similar chain...but depending where you live there might be an independent shop. Some town centres have these stores, normally out the way...trying not to sound judgy...but often near vape shops, the trinket shops - not the cath kidson kind but the witchy / crystal places. Maybe have a wander down town, especially if you have a bigish high street but don't to walk down the edge...

Is Doc Black still around? When DD was a teen it was my go-to for emo/gothy stuff for her. Hell Bunny has some good slightly goth stuff too.

Thanks I'll take a look. I'm tempted to get them hot topic gift cards and letting them choose stuff and let them wait till it arrives

Remember to factor in import duty and post office fees for Hot Topic.
