Lol! I know it's a general store but this one has everything! It's like stepping back in time too! I feel like it's a history lesson plus a shopping experience! Loved it and bought my son some toys!

I have been in Mast General Store in most of the towns I have visited and of course the original one in Valle Crucis, NC. This was a nice one. There are a nice selection of clothes, shoes, sporting equipment and old timey candy. Definitely...More

They have a good selection of souvenir items and prices are reasonable. Their stock was different from similar type stores we visited in the area. We were a little disappointed they did not have more locally produced items.

We could have spent allay and a fortune here - so much interesting stuff in a store that feels like you're in a time machine. Much more fun than a big box store!

Whenever we are near a mast general store we always stop. Very cool store for nostalgic items, outdoor gear and there is candy galore. The kids including our older ones love it!

We were lured to the Asheville location by the promise of old-fashioned candy in barrels. The barrels were there, but the candy wasn't old-fashioned. The rest of the large store is a mix of whimsical and boutiquey housewares, clothing, and knick knacks. The college kids...More

I was convinced I wasn't going to enjoy the store, considering it a tourist trap, but I actually found several things that I had been looking for for an upcoming trip. They carried a Deuter backpack that I couldn't find in any other outdoor store,...More

A visit to the candy section of Mast General Store is an important part of our trips to Asheville. Where else can you find candy cigarettes and other old fashioned candy that you remember from childhood. Of course, there are clothes, local items and cooking...More

Yes, this is a store - however, I would say it's more of an experience! As soon as you walk in, the staff is super welcoming. We were able to purchase plenty of great clothes for our 5yo and soon-to-be-born daughter including Columbia, North Face,...More

There is a wine store on Biltmore that have a wide selection of wine, also most of the breweries have stores attached if you are looking for a local specialty beer.

I'd just give a call and ask if this is going to be a consideration for you. Unless it is a service dog you'd have to ask. (828) 232-1883
