This store has it all and is priced just right. Best part of the store was the friendly service and great finds. I could have spent hours just looking there is so much to be seen. Found some very unique gifts for friends and can't wait to go back.

Entering Mast store is like taking a step back in time. The candy barrel section would delight any child's heart. They have a wide variety of clothing and accessories to shop for, and often have sale events.

Loved the old store building and the flooring...lots of neat items from clothing to cookware to candy and toys and camping supplies. We visited the Boone and Valle Crusis stores and each had a little something differentas well as common items...this place is a must for visitors even if you don't buy anything it is a really neatplace to visit!

This is our third MGS, one of the best shops on King in historical Boone. Largest selection we have seen with this chain, very busy and bustling. They have genuine toys from yesteryear, loads of candies, apparel, footwear and hiking gear.

This is a really fun place to visit, you will not be disappointed. It feels like you've stepped back in time entering the old building which is well-stocked and well-staffed with helpful, friendly people. Mostly left untouched and definitely unspoiled, the store is a real landmark in the area. The drive there from Boone is really nice. Lots of great... More

Mast General Store carries items you don't just find everywhere. Go by and see them, you could stay in there all day. For an even better treat go out to Valle Cruices to their Historic store there, it is very COOL

Even though there are closer Mast General stores, this is a great visit every time we go to Boone. It's a great experience and love to go with friends/family.

Kids loved the old time candy, toys, and colas in the bottle. It was also nice to find local Carolina products such as honey, jams, pickles. Public parking available not far from store.
