Heard so much about this place & it is very nice. They have nice things, but, way to pricey!!! Not gonna pay those prices. More for the tourist & college kids.

I always enjoy my visits to Mast General Store. The fist thing I do is get a fresh popped bag of popcorn. I then get lost in the candy isle as I take a walk down memory lane enjoying all my old favorites.

Stopped with family just for fun. Loved all the candy. My daughter had fun here. Some things over priced but a fun place to walk around in.

I always buy something at Mast General Store-- the children love it. Very good clothing inventory of specialty items. This was my first visit to the Boone location. Cokes in the bottle, old school toys, candy and cold weather wear-- a must do --

Looking for unique items in the kitchen? Cool clothing? Shoes? Coffee mugs? Cast iron? And all the accessories? 2 stories of fun! The old fashioned candy barrels are awesome! Plan on 2 hours in this store!

Cute store but there wasn't one thing in the store that wasn't double in price. It was nice to see since it's a tourist attraction, but if you are short on time, this is the place to skip.

We always stop at Mast General stores. It's a great place to get jams and dip mixes and local gourmet snacks. A fun place to shop.

Just like other visitors wrote, visiting this store is like a "step back in time". Seems like you can find anything and everything here-from clothing, to tons of candy (even hard to find old fashioned candy), toys, and even locally grown groceries upstairs (jellys, canned veggies/fruits, etc.). You can also pick up Boone souvenirs here too if you're looking for... More
