THE must-see and shop store in the area. From candy to compasses, backpacks to hiking boots, hot sauces to nonsensical souvenirs...the Mast Store has it all. A bit pricey, but this may be the only place in the mountains that has the item you want or need. Browse and take in the look and feel of an old country store.

Took our 4 kids there and they were in heaven. We spent over $80 on candy. That was a 1st but worth the memories.

Great Mercantile! This gem will take you back to your younger years. Find old fashion Candy you just dont see anymore and old toys you grew up on. Definitely a place to visit. Had a blast in there.

Downtown Boone is filled with lots of stores and is worthwhile the time to visit. The candy barrels are fun to pick out old favorite candies. This is not the original store.

Wonderful ambience and collection of huge candy section to gardening to clothing to shoes to jewelry to collectibles and gifts. What an array!! Lots of fun looking around and finding a selection of top-quality choices. This a tourist attraction as well as a resource for local residents and ASU students.

I am from Boone so I don't visit the Mast that often. I know though it is a go to place if your Visiting. They have a lot of different things from close to the candy barrel. The store has that rustic feel to it and just a overall neat place to visit.

There are actually three Mast General Stores (one is an annex) in the Boone area. One is in Boone itself, and two are in the area of Valle Crucis, which is a short, but beautiful, drive out of Boone. The stores and the annex all portray the image of an old general store, although the prices (especially for clothes) are... More

We stopped by here to waste a little time and enjoyed looking around. It's fun to see all of the different types of candy in the barrels and to see the old toys and games they sell. They also have clothes, shoes, cookware, decorations....lots of different things for everyone!

I love to stop in the Mast General Store in Boone, they have a large selection of dry goods but the candy barrel is worth the trip. They offer candy from my childhood and I feel like I did when I was 10 years old and had a dime in my pocket. A dime won't get you anything today but... More
