“Great Ol' General Store”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

Dog friendly, people friendly, young or old. You will find a little bit of everything unusual here. We always have a laugh at the t-shirts and this year's pick for the hubby was " Let's just say I am right, and leave it at that". I bought huckleberry jelly and old fashioned candy for myself.

“Get there early!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We visited Boone, NC and Mast General Store on Labor Day. It opens at 10 am, and fortunately, we were there before that time. We were able to explore their MANY rooms before the crowds started to roll in. You'll need some time to see everything, so get there early! The staff is most helpful and they even gave our dog a treat!

What a nest store. The customer service was great. Very clean. Old candy I hadn't seen in decades. In a beautiful area!

“Worth strolling through if in Boone. Not particularly a must see.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

If your in Boone sure go stroll through but don't plan your trip around it. I see reviews saying fun or fascinating and I guess if your looking for $6/pound candy (no taffy btw) or other items you would find at REI then go for it but fun or fascinating?? Maybe the Valle Crucis location offers more in the area of nostalgia that this location doesn't seem to have.

“Mast General Store”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

One of the best old time general stores around! Be sure to visit the original in Valle Crucis. An experience you won't forget! Even though I live here, I love to visit the store. I always find something to bring home!
