We always try to stop by the Mast General Store in any town, but love how easy it is to get to the one in Boone. They are a little like an old fashioned general store as well carrying items for hiking/camping, etc. One room has men & women's clothing, especially featuring Columbia brand. It even has somewhat dressy items as well as casual. Another room is a combination of an old fashioned candy store and kids retro toys. Upstairs they have a home store with kitchen & decorating items. I love to browse the bread mixes and jams. The final upstairs room has shoes and more outdoors clothing. The clothes tend to be a little pricey, but you can usually find some good sales.

We enjoyed this store, even though much of the merchandise was either pricey or could be bought at your local REI. There were some specialty items and it was fun to roam.

The Mast General Store in downtown Boone is in the old Mercantile Building. With it's creaking floors it brings back memories of old time general store. It is well stocked with both men's and women's clothing with indoor and outdoor use. The staff is both well trained and knowledgeable on their products and which ones fit your needs. It is difficult to get that sort of customer treatment in your main line stores anymore even in this economy. Value is a key word here.
