A lot of items to look through. Prices pretty good until you go down stairs where all the shoes and outfitting clothes, camping and shoes were. A men's brimmed hat was $78.00 and same thing was $25.00 at wal-mart. But people very nice

I loved this store! I took my 9 and 11 year old daughter into this general store to explain how it use to be in the past. I don't think they enjoyed the experience as much as I did but they loved the candy section in the back. They have all of the updated name brands in this store. Also... More

I have been going to Mast when in Asheville for years. It has an interesting product mix and if you have kids, the store has a rather large bulk candy section.

It's mostly a clothes store. They do have some variety of foods items and candy. So if your looking for clothing, especially outdoor clothing, then this is the place for you.

This general store has a bit of everything. So much to look at and a very pleasant place to explore. The people working at the Mast General Store are all friendly and helpful. You can just sit in a rocking chair up front and not even have to shop if you don't like to do that activity. It was a... More

I come to Asheville every year and a vist to Mast is a must. It's a typical general store that sells Southern food items as well as candy and some other goodies, and it also sells some clothing. I like it because it's a good place to get souvenirs and it's always fun to just browse.

This place is ok. Nothing spectacular. Its a general store with a little bit of everything. The top floor has clothing, souvenirs, candy and food. The down stairs area has hiking gear.

I have been to three Mast General Stores and I love going to get lots of different kinds of candy. They also have clothes, gifts, housewares lots to see here. The candy is a little expensive. I always get lots of it though. Gummy, sour, sweet all kinds in big barrels.
