General Store

Nice re-creation of old time general store. Not as large or contains the variety or old time flavor as the original in Valle Crucis,

Great selection of hi-end mountain and outdoor wear and gear at reasonable prices. The store is in an old brick building that has been restored.beautifully to its original appearance, blending with the 1950's appearance of Downtown Boone.

Similar to The Mast General Store and Annex in Valle Cruis. There is something to interest almost everyone from the hiker/camper to the kids to grandma. Prices are a bit high.

The mast general store is located in downtown Boone. It offers a vast variety of items - from clothing to barrels and barrels of candy (including sugar free along the back wall). I like some of their clothing as well. If you're an outdoor enthusiast, venture upstairs and you will find more to browse thru. The other items upstairs include... More

All that amazing candy you remember from childhood but can't find anymore? Here it is! Plus every cast-iron cooking item you ever wanted, outdoor gear, a frisbee that changes color in sunlight, cold Austrian ginger-ale that bites pleasingly on the way down - what more do you want? The 4th of July parade marches right down main street in front... More

Bulk old time candy, unique toys and jewelry. Didn't check out clothing, rather crowded. Was Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. Wooden floors give it old General Store feeling. Didn't give it five stars only because I felt some items were way over priced.

Our family vacations in Boone almost every year and every time we are there, going to the Mast General store (particularly the candy section) is a must. It is so charming and really fun to walk through. The candy selection is excellent and fun.
