“One stop shopping”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

We visited Mast General Store in Asheville and had such a fun time exploring. Bought items that were available at home because the price was so much better! Lots of holiday décor, kitchen items, jewelry, clothing, drugstore paraphernalia, barrels of candy - who could want more! They also ship for a nominal fee, so travelers can send home their purchases. The basement is full of camping and outdoor goodies. You can park just down the street in the public parking lot. The first hour is free and just a dollar an hour after that. We managed to get in and out with 3 minutes to spare on our hour!

“great store”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

We were walking around downtown and just happened to go in to this store and we are so glad we did! They have a little bit of everything, clothing, shoes, camping gear, candy, toys, ect.. It is a packed 2 levels full of good quality stuff. Both of my daughters got new shoes and some candy. I could have done a lot more shopping here but we were running short on time. I will definitely be stopping in next time I am in Asheville!
Another thing to note is that they have nice clean restrooms, I definitely appreciate that!

“Summer Clearance”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We visited the Asheville store today and there was a summer clearance sale going on. Some great prices on Life Is Good t-shirts. We spent an hour just looking at the unique items in the back of the store. It's a must visit when passing through town or visiting the Biltmore Estate.
