This really is the place you can find just about anything- for your kitchen,clothes, candy, anything. You can't help but explore the racks and shelves, discover things you haven't seen in years (including my very first lunch box!) and find treasures. I found the prices reasonable and the merchandise of great quality. Its worth a visit, as chances are you... More

First floor is some real serious stuff for outdoor enthusiasts, particularly hiking and backpacking. Didn't look closely enough to rate the pricing, but brands and quality were excellent. Upstairs is the fun stuff; candy in barrels, humorous signs, good quality souvenir type t-shirts at good prices. We enjoyed our visit and came away with some "treasures". Just a hint, go... More

Have to disagree with the person who called it a tourist trap. The store in Asheville has real outdoor clothing and boots, as well as old-fashioned candy, toys, and memorabilia. Definitely worth a visit if you're in that part of the city.

Enjoyed looking at toys that I had forgotten about. Even my daughter saw things there that brought back memories.

I visited the one in Waynesville. It was neat to see the old fashioned soda bottles and candies but I found there items to be overpriced. More interesting shops in the area.

Our visit was very entertaining. We shopped for a long time looking at everything they had to offer. It was very enjoyable experience.

This is a store that is supposed to evoke an old time general store feel, but to me it was kinda an upscale outdoor clothing store. They were deep with inventory of $150 pullover shirts and the like. Lots of outdoor gear and clothes. Very good quality goods. Lots of store associates hanging about. I believe you pay a premium... More

Mast General store has a store in Hendersonville and one in Asheville. The one in Asheville is right on Biltmore street and hard to miss. Lots of local trinkets you can buy here. Few old fashioned general stores like this still exist so it's definitely worth a visit when in Asheville.

Great way to see the 'way things used to be' in a comfortable setting. Items are well displayed and reasonably priced. Customers get chatty just browsing - a fun time for all.
