Hot Topic Comes to Canada
The store that all my American friends ridicule is coming to Canada!
This Friday, Hot Topic will open its first two Canadian stores with a third to follow in October. All three locations are in Ontario malls, close enough to the “FASHION Magazine” offices to become a regular haunt for the interns.
Now I’ve been to Hot Topic before and it’s really not that bad. I’d probably shop there all the time if I was a contestant on “Rock of Love” and was trying to impress Bret Michaels with my ironic juxtaposition of Lolita-like cuteness and anti-establishment skank. Still, if you’re not familiar with the retailer, click the link under the photo above to get a better idea of who exactly shops at Hot Topic.
And to think, just yesterday I was convinced that Edmonton was about to rival Moose Jaw for the title of “Canada’s Glamour Capital.” Well done, Greater Toronto Area. Well done!
