I love visiting here whenever we are downtown. It reminds me of an old general store with a little bit of everything. My favorite area is the candy section because it is filled with a lot of candy you can't find now a days. They have a unique collection of clothes, housewares, outdoors, shoes, toys, and specialty foods. There is... More

If you have never taken a trip here, you should really check it out. Camping gear, clothes, shoes, food, popcorn, cooking items. It's got an old-timey feeling inside but still updated.

Has the usual touristy gimmicks, large selection of clothing, cool toys for kids and adults, outdoors/camping items. It wasn't crowded with merchandise. Had just the right amount of stuff to keep me looking and interested. Loved the loose candy bins. $7.99/lb I think :)

I think the Mast store is fun to shop and has so much to offer the discerning shopper. Great retro candy area for children and wooden toys, Chaco shoes, men's clothing in the basement , nice collection of sporting goods and hats. Think LLBean of the South. I bought a lovely scarf and other items for gifts. Quality store. The... More

Friendly store with lots of neat items. I am a little disappointed in clothing selections for men but realize it is a store with a little bit of everything. If you are downtown, be sure to drop in

We have been going to Mast General Store for years. It is a very unique store in the historic part of downtown Knoxville. You will find old fashioned candies, toys, kitchen wares, clothing for family, outdoor gear, etc.
