We stopped by Mast as part of a family vaca and found yummies for everybody, jams for dad, pop rocks, bag of candy, sock monkey umbrella for our toddler and just fun shopping all around! Anyone who sells local goods + mellisa and Doug toys is alright. Spend a few hours, go to the annex for ice cream - the... More

We stopped in the shop twice on our week long vacation near Boone. I was so thankful for the courteous cashiers who allowed my 4 year old to drive the tractor around the middle candy barrels. This distraction made it possible for me to actually shop! I loved their selection of ala carte Fiestaware. I was able to replace a... More

Even you just go for the Candy, you must stop. It will make you feel like a kid again. However, don't miss out of the outdoor clothing. Go upstairs and check out the sale racks. They almost always some great deals. Was able to pick up a Patagonia Retro-X Vest for $78.00 which originally was $179. The staff is so... More

Traditional and a recommended tourist stop, Mast General Store is an interesting and fun place to visit, but we found it way too pricey for much buying--except for a few pieces of their huge candy supply, which isn't cheap either! Some of the staff were extremely friendly, but others did not even acknowledge us (The people on the candy side... More

While our Boy Scout troop was having fun skiing / snowboarding, some of the parents decided to go into Boone and visit the Mast General Store. I have not been to this location, but have been to the one in Valle Crucis a few times. The parking is terrible. There is nothing but street parking. We had to park behind... More

Me and my girlfriend were on vacation in Boone and she suggested we go to the Mast General Store. I had never been or even heard of it but figured why not? It was very easy to find, however, parking is terrible so get there early for a parking spot. The Mast General Store was better than I thought it... More
