Hot Topic Shuttering ShockHound

Posted by on March 30, 2011

Looks like there’s one less place to buy H.I.M. shirts online now, as Hot Topic’s online retailer, Shockhound.com, is shuttering in May. Actually, the site was a decent place to buy DRM-free music, and had some decent original content to go along with the retail part of the site. Shockhound had just launched in October of 2008. The site is being shut down in a cost-cutting effort. Hot Topic lost money in the fourth quarter of last year, and the CEO and merchandising chief both left the company last week.
