We have visited this store several times and have never been disappointed with their merchandise quality. They handle name brand camping, kitchen and clothing (including some UT) merchandise, plus memorable candy and games for all ages. This is a great stop for all visitors to the area or regulars looking for name brand and occasional seasonal bargains. There is a... More

Spent about a half hour touring this store - truly has everything from soup to nuts. Don't much see general stores of this scale very often so fun to peruse. Bought a few things for my home that were priced reasonably at less than $10 each. Lots of expensive things in this store that I have seen for considerably less... More

Mast really is a "general" store. A nice one at that. They have everything under the son almost. Prices range from cheap to very expensive. They offer a nice selection of clothing and footwear for both men and women. The atmosphere is the best part. The old world feeling from the store is great. Hard wood floors and barrels of... More

How long has it been since you saw carmel cream (bullseye) candy for sale? Mast has 'em and lots more. Downstairs is an array of every kind of camping equipment from boots to clothing to backpacks and tents.

This place is huge! I could definitely spend a couple hours just looking at everythjng. There seems to be something for everyone. From clothes, kitchen supplies, food, and the candy it's definitely worth a trip inside. They have big barrels of candy, will take you back to your childhood!

Visiting Mast General Store certainly brought back memories of my families trips to town and the old general store. However, Mast sells much more high end outdoor clothing than did our general store. Also, there seemed to be more sales people than customers. Still, all in all, it was a pleasant visit.

Larger than expected inside(2 story). My favorite area is the retro candy and toy area. Plenty of other retro shopping areas as well as contemporary shopping.

It's like stepping back in time. The candy in this store are the ones you grew up as a kid and is no longer available at the other stores. Great store, has camping and clothing in the lower level

We got a kick out of this place! They have such a unique and fun variety of things that I don't know where to start! They are pet friendly, as we brought in my Dad's girlfriend's King Charles Cavalier. They even have doggie bowls at the front filled with water. There are comfortable rocking chairs for adults and kids to... More

This is a great place to get clothing. The prices are excellent. The shoes are marked down and they have such good prices. You can also get things for your pet, toys, dog bowls, treats. The kids will love all of the candy bins. They also have some toys, kitchen supplies, books, cookware, dinnerware, glasses, and much more. You can... More
