Hot Topic and Torrid Store Operations

Hot Topic and Torrid each have a Vice President of Store Operations who leads a divisional operations team. Supporting the Vice President of Store Operations for each division are regional directors who oversee multiple district managers, and district managers who typically oversee six to nine stores. A typical store has a store manager, two to three assistant managers, and six to ten part-time sales associates, depending on the season.

We have established training and operating procedures to assist field management in the supervision and training of all associates. We have also designed a store manager training program, which is used to train new managers.

At Hot Topic, we strive to create a store environment that customers will consider “their place” to shop with friends. We seek to hire sales associates who are energetic, knowledgeable and passionate about music and pop culture. Additionally, in return for feedback on trends, we reimburse Hot Topic store associates for the cost of attending concerts. They are also encouraged to directly communicate customer feedback, as well as their own merchandise and product ideas, to the buyers and management. Our culture and our direct interaction with, and respect for, sales associates are significant factors in attracting these associates to work for us.

The primary goal of the Hot Topic sales associate position is to provide superior and informed customer service in order to maximize sales and minimize inventory shrinkage. Store management receives daily store sales and category results so that performance can be measured against set goals. Postage-paid “report cards” are provided in all stores for customers to grade performance and make recommendations to us. We train associates to greet each customer, to inform the customer about new trends and to suggest merchandise that matches the customer’s lifestyle, music and trends. We believe that our associates’ high level of product knowledge and customer service differentiates us from other specialty retailers.

At Torrid, we create a store environment that is fun, friendly and focused on fashion. We understand the importance of focusing on the preferences and opinions of our target customers. We seek to hire associates who are passionate about fashion and understand and appreciate the plus-size customer. We provide our sales associates with information on trends and key looks for each season. We also provide coaching and training on fit and quality, which are especially important to our Torrid customers.

District managers, along with all members of the store teams, have a base pay rate and may qualify to receive certain bonus payouts. All of our employees who meet certain eligibility criteria may participate in our Employee Stock Purchase Plan and the Hot Topic 401(k) Plan. We believe that our continued success is dependent in part on our ability to attract, retain and motivate qualified associates. In particular, the success of our growth will be dependent on our ability to promote and/or recruit talented district and store managers.

STYLE="margin-top:18px;margin-bottom:0px">Hot Topic Marketing and Promotion

We rely on our
customers, associates, store design and exciting music to attract new customers to our Hot Topic stores. We actively solicit and encourage customer feedback, both to generate enthusiasm and passion for our offerings as well as to allow us to quickly
respond to customer needs, which in turn helps us to remain current in merchandising our stores. To further promote Hot Topic stores, we sponsor various music events and conduct periodic contests. Our sponsorship activities have included concert
tours such as the South by Southwest, or SXSW, Music Festival, Vans Warped Tour, the Take Action Tour and the Taste of Chaos Tour.

We sell
gift cards at our stores as a convenient alternative for gift giving by our customers. Our Hot Topic gift cards do not expire. Gift card styles and colors periodically change and are designed to appeal to customer preferences. Gift cards can be
redeemed for merchandise at any Hot Topic store location for any amount up to the current balance. Unused amounts remain on the card until redeemed by the customer. Customers may add to outstanding amounts on their existing gift cards in our stores.

In fiscal 2004, we established the Hot Topic Foundation. The Foundation’s objective is to support programs and organizations that
specifically focus on encouraging and educating young people in music and the arts. The

Foundation has been funded through donations from our employees, our company and our customers. As of February 2, 2008, $4,187,000 had been raised for
the benefit of the Foundation. We are proud of the meaningful contributions the Foundation has made to school music programs and other initiatives, and we believe these activities have a positive influence on young people.

We seek to make a
strong connection to young plus-size women and build our Torrid brand through our fashion forward marketing message. To support this, we advertise in premier fashion magazines with national distribution. We also conduct activities to increase
awareness of and interest in our brand, our mission and our objectives, such as local and regional “model search” contests, where we solicit involvement of our existing customers and future customers.

STYLE="margin-top:12px;margin-bottom:0px; text-indent:4%;padding-bottom:3px;line-Height:95%; vertical-align:top">Our Torrid guest loyalty program, divastyle®

As of fiscal 2007 year end, we had over 800,000 sign ups and over 100,000 full divastyleSIZE="1">® members. These program members are rewarded throughout the year with special offers and promotions and a newsletter that provides fashion information and updates on new products and current trends available at
