A commenter has a suggestion for those wanting to skip to the front of the Topshop queue: "If you have a friend/roommate that has shopped at the store already, have them give you their shopping bag, one item of clothing and the receipt. Go to the front of the line where people are exiting the store and tell the guy at the door that you are doing a return. Voila, you are in! Of course, don't actually return the item."
