the title is a little deceiving (when you are an auction house for antiques) because you walk in thinking it'll be true old school General Store, it got it half right and sells new different with an old flair. nice place, nice staff. offers the unusual at reasonable prices in the middle of downtown Knoxville

I love this store! It has such a great variety of things that makes it the perfect spot to pick up a gift for just about anyone. It has retro toys, old fashioned candy, fresh popcorn by the bag, kitchen items, dog items, garden items, clothing, and hiking/outdoor gear. Love it!

This store is located in downtown Knoxville on South Gay Street, among other stores and restaurants. The store carries a great variety of clothing, accessories, knick knacks, etc. my husband and I were excited to find some of the hard to find (near home) colas, such as Cheerwine and Nehi, in the long neck bottles. Overall, the prices in the... More

This is a great stop for everyone in the family and for couples too! If you are in need of hiking boots or comfy walking shoes this is your stop. They sell the "Life is Good" brand. You will also find barrels of candy that will amaze and also delight someone searching for a pastime favorite. Think country and woods... More

My wife and I stopped here last week and shopped for about an hour. It was an enjoyable experience for both of us. We especially like the old fashioned candy and toy sections, and bought a few Christmas gifts for our grandkids.

If you are in the downtown Knoxville area this is a great place to shop. It is full of nostalgic items from the past, plus nice higher end clothing such as Patagonia. There is also a nice old fashioned candy section. A great place to spend some time and relive some memories from your childhood.

Whenever I'm on Gay Street, I always make time to stop at the Mast General Store. I love every inch of that store, from the barrels of candy, to the wide selection of awesome clothing! I love looking at their winter accessories, especially! Such a wonderful store, and always a blast to just browse around. I could literally stay for... More

We recently ran onto the Mast General Store while in Knoxville, TN. Old wooden flooring, tin ceiling and old staircase to the basement level shoe department. A definite blast from the past with all kinds of items right from a mercantile of years ago. It includes bins of old-fashioned candies and everything from corn meal & grits to housewares and...
