I read reviews that suggested we stop here and we were not disappointed. The best part was we were able to bring our labradoodle into the store with us. They are pet friendly and even gave her some treats.

My sister suggested our family stop here as a fun alternative to all the outdoor activities we had planned. So, on a cold blustery afternoon we visited the store and it was a blast. Our kids (12 and 15) marveled at all of the candy and fun games, etc. My husband and I enjoyed getting some candy we haven't seen... More

This is a place we stop at every time we come to Boone. I love the variety of jellies and salsas. This is a place to visit for all your country shopping. They have it all. Very knowledgeable staff ready to help answer any questions you may have.

Generally, my boys groan and roll their eyes when I want to stop at a store to shop but Mast General is the exception. The HUGE candy room is fun--but it adds up fast. They also have clothes, purses, jewelry, food items, jams, jellies, kitchen supplies, decor, cold weather gear, nick-knacks, gifts, pocket knives, toys, games, furniture, shoes, tons of... More

we visited Boone on a horrible rainy/snowy day and was very happy to fund this massive store on the Main Street. There is so much stuff there that you could spend all day looking around. I really liked the candy section. WOW $7.95 per pound of what must be the largest selection of goodies on the planet. Anyhow, go there,... More

The original location is worth going to see. However, this one is set up very nice. It is in a good location to walk to other stores and restaurants.

We always make a stop at the Mast General Store. We love going back into time and seeing the many candies and treats that we had as kids growing up.

Trip to Mountains would not be complete without stopping at Mast General Store in Boone. Candy of course. Definitely a must see if in the area. Didn't stay long due to the crowds. Black Friday and they were packed. Will return when in the area.

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!
