The Mast General Store is like a blast from the past. They seemed to have every type of candy imaginable and is fun for both adults and kids. The prices are very reasonable and the staff was friendly. It is worth a trip!

Nothing to dislike! This General Store will take you back in time to the early 1900's! Charming interior, and stocked full of souvenirs and special items that you would remember from the 1950's! Not to mention an upstairs filled with classy country clothing and household items! Definitely a must-see!

This is a old fashioned place that brought back childhood memories of going into candy stores and getting as much as you could fit in a bag for one price. Very cute and special. Their clothing in the adjoining shop is way over priced so we didnt stay in there long but the toys,candy, and everything else were worth the... More

We told our grandsons that we were going shopping. NO WAY!!!! We drive from Winston Salem (almost two hours) to the original Mast Store several times a year. We LOVE it. You get everything from hardware, food, jams, knives, toys, cooking items, garden items, shoes, hiking stuff, books, Amish rocking chairs....you name it....they have it. The boys found the toys...

Great store in the heart of downtown Boone, very near to Appalachian State University. Very crowed on the weekends, especially football weekends. Lots of stuff for everyone.

So wonderful to see the Old-Time candy that I didn't know I even missed! Plus if you're interested in nostalgic toys, this is the place. Thanks a bunch.

Based upon recommendations, I stopped by the Mast General Store in Boone, NC...and spent about two hours just browsing! There is a huge area of loose candy in barrels (you buy by the pound), and next to it is a fantastic selection of children's toys and games, some of which I've not seen since I was a child (45+ years...

It was fun to visit had a lot of items, toys etc that I haven't seen in years. We visited both the original one and the one in Boone. The original one had more character it's old and feels more authentic.

This store has about anything you could want. From shoes to the kitchen sink! I've only been to the Mast store in Boone which is right in the middle of it all. This is a cute little college town, that means there is always something going. There are a bunch of stores to hit along the way. Parking is another... More

We visited this location on our recent trip to Boone, Nc. I found the store to have everything you could think of, from fishing hats to candy displayed in barrels just like from a bygone era, of course not just a penny anymore. The floors were old, wood and creeky which ads to the charm. You could brows there for... More
