Dear Hot Topic,
I just read this news item from the New York Times and it says…
“While sales at most stores plummeted last month, the teenage retailer Hot Topic enjoyed a 6.5 percent gain, thanks mostly to brisk sales of gear inspired by Twilight, the teenage vampire movie.” [NYT]
All I have to say is: YOU’RE WELCOME!
While companies like Microsoft and Yahoo are downsizing and laying off thousands by the day you’re still going strong profiting off the obsession of freaks like me and all you gals here. Oh and my mom. Who knew selling crap like bandaids and buttons and $6.00 patches could keep a mall store afloat?
But you’re proving them wrong! Now if only you could sell the official calendar you might single-handedly save our entire economy. Are you listening Warren Buffet and Barack Obama? Get the Hot Topic folks in your financial cabinet and watch our economy bounce back. Now THAT’S change we can believe in!
Studded belts and pink hair dye,
Don’t wanna waste your money on more crap for Valentine’s Day? Why don’t you make something instead?! That’s right, enter the Twi-alentine’s Day Contest!! NOW! Prizes being announced shortly!
