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!

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.

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!

What a fun, fascinating place to go. They have a lot of historical things an Old General Store might carry, but also have a lot of new things - especially clothes and shoes. Don't miss the Candy Barrel. The owners, by the way, give so much back to the local community, you should go there for that reason alone. You can be guaranteed that much of what you spend there will find it's way back into local charities and programs. Don't miss this treat!!
