we are trying to visit all the mast general stores. This one is in downtown asheville. It does not have the charm of the original, but it does have charm of its own. It is a great outdoor store. They also have a nice selection of candy, but not as many glassed bottled sodas as the Valle crucis store. Still... More

Great place! I love Mast General. The people that work there are friendly, the store is extremely well kept and, the prices are reasonable. There is a cool history to the place and, there's a wide variety of things to choose from. You'll find one of the best footwear selections in town, more candy than you could ever eat, soft... More

A second trip to Asheville and a second visit to the Mast General Store, because it's kinda' irresistible. Wooden floors, high ceilings, and crammed with everything from great clothing brands to barrels of "penny" candy, and knick-knacks that say "country". You may be in Asheville for the art, or the music, or business, but Mast is a Must. This general... More

Mast General is one of those must stop at stores, just to browse if you wish. They have excellent quality outdoor gear for your hiking needs. All of the brand names you would want. MG has really good sales throughout the year. I often get discounts at about half off. Plentiful in nostalgic back in time merchandise. Bringing our dog... More

Outdoor clothing abounds here... Colombia, North Face, Woolrich, Mountain Hardware, Kule, just to name a few. Clark's, Merrill's, Keen's and more on the lower floor. Hiking and camping accessories available. A candy section, toy section, and home section round this store out. Not so much a flash from the past kind of place, so come here looking for great deals...

Was hoping to see more old times type of items to purchase but was overwhelmed with clothing and shoes. I remember going here back in 2007 and it was much more enjoyable. I was very disappointed but there is a parking garage right across the street.

The windows all decked out for the season made me curious as to what shopping treasures were still to be discovered. A fun store filled with history of an old-time mercantile, candy, clothes, jewelry, toys, footwear and more. Step inside to see for yourself. I found a gorgeous seasonal top hidden amongst "practical" tops.

I'm sure Mast General Store is fun year round. But it really got us into the Christmas spirit. The store is fun to browse.
