This is the 3rd Mast General Store location I've visited and it doesn't disappoint. A little bit of everything for everyone. I especially like their camping/outdoor gear section. Always something unique that you can't find anywhere else. Definitely worth stopping in when strolling through downtown Asheville!

Quite an interesting place. Didn't have enough time to do a lot of looking around which if you go to this place you need time to enjoy. Staff was friendly. Ran into a rude tourist. Maybe she couldn't find what she was looking for.

We go to Asheville 3 or 4 times every summer for long weekends and we always make a stop into The Mast General Store. The children insist on filling up their little green wicker baskets with all kinds of candy. They have great casual and outdoor adventure clothing. And, they have walls and walls full of unique little gifts and... More

It was disappointing to discover that Mast General Store isn't unique . . . they are duplicated all over the state, apparently, because I went into several while I was there. But it's a great spot. They have really nice causal clothes and a very eclectic selection of housewares, touristy stuff, candy, etc. It's a lot of fun to wander... More

It combines the old general store charm with all types of old fashioned candy and soda pop with modern essentials! Only 2 public restrooms for a large store FYI

We went here with a friend from Charlotte and spent two hours looking around....up and downstairs....three levels full of shoes, hats, clothing, old fashioned candy, and more.

We stopped here with friends on a trip to downtown Asheville. Love the tshirts, the signs, and the hiking supplies. Found a super comfortable pair of walking sandals for a fabulous price.

This one was a bit larger than the others we've been to and they had a large downstairs outdoor clothing area. I know it's nothing fancy but I just love these stores! Nice to be unhurried and just be able to browse and look at your leisure!

The variety of items; hard to pick from them. I was able to find candy in boxes from my sons childhood. I usually have to order it and pay shipping. This was exciting. Seeing the old toys brought back great memories.

You can go for a visit...and stay all day! What fun. There is so much to see here..lots of items that I haven't seen for a very long time. Brings a smile - just to see them. It's the kind of place that has everything from hand cream to straw hats...wonderful line of clothing & shoes too. Be sure to... More
