Historic General Store... lots of cool and unique merchandise to look at all wrapped in a ole time general store. Old squeaky wood floors are the icing on the cake!

Mast General Store is a must when you are in Watauga County. It's a country store with all your name brands. Cool old fashioned original squeaky floors and Patagonia clothing. It's great. They have the candy barrel. It's a small room with tons of candy...More

We've been to some of their other locations, but this is the original. We ended up spending quite a bit of time looking around. It was a step into history. They sell products you haven't seen in years. Staff was very friendly. Definitely worth the...More

A fun little shop with all kinds of treats, candy, gifts and so forth. Everyone is friendly and you won't go away empty handed. It's a step back in time.

An old timey store with items from the past, mixed in with items from today. Great place to visit (and shop of course). Very friendly staff. Make sure to visit all buildings. Especially the annex store down the road for the 'candy room'.

Great little “old time Store”. Pricey, but expected. Has a bit of everything from snacks to clothes to outdoor odds and ends. The annex seems to have a little less of everything. Still worth a stop.
