Could not get my wife out
Dec 2020
Very cool store with a wide variety of goods at a decent price. My wife loved the clothes and bought several items. We also bought place mats for our house and lunch boxes for the grand kids. Three different levels of shopping. The only drawback was the store was pretty crowded.

George C, Please thank your wife for us and tell her that we hope she'll visit again soon - just teasing you a bit! I'm happy that you guys had a good time in the store and I hope the grandkids enjoyed their lunch boxes. Did you fill them with candy?

Stepping back in time

The Mast Store has a feeling of times gone by, but with the everyday needs and fun finds, too!
Clothing, camping and hiking gear, toys, lotions, ointments, baby items, and barrels full of wrapped candies can all be found here.
Centrally located Downton, you cant miss it!

Love the sound of the wooden floors
Jul 2020 • Family
Mast General Store is definitely a destination to visit in Waynesville. My teenagers and husband love their candy selection which has a lot of classic candies. It has a very southern charm feel and the floors are wooden and make a lovely creaking noises as customers walk. There are three levels to the store, with each level offering something for each person in the family. They have a large selection of items from clothing, jewelry, nik naks, natural care products, signs with cute sayings, camping gear, candy, toys, games, old fashioned sodas, garden decor, and more. Truly a fun place to browse and shop.

General store...past and present
Jul 2020
First the Mast General store is centrally located in downtown. Parking on main street is parallel but with ample room to navigate. Once inside the Mast General store there are so many things to see and buy. The clothing section is well stocked from shoes to t-shirts, items for outdoor activities, kitchenware, and retro toys. My favorite though was on the bottom floor, which was the candy area. We always seem to leave with a poke full of candy. My wife also found her favorite candy bar a Zagnut. A worthwhile time spent remembering some past memories, finding a keepsake, or satisfying our ever present sweet tooth.

Good 'ole Fashion Country Store
Jan 2020
Visited Mast General Store for my first time yesterday. What an awesome store! Reminds me of a good 'ole fashion country store, but without the typical touristy fare of goods. Lots of very high quality clothing and shoes/boots. There's 3 floors of just about everything. The bottom floor is all about kitchen/bath/gifts and there's LOTs to choose from. I thought the only area lacking was the candle selection...sparse and not much of quality to choose from. They had a nice kitchen section, lots of books, lots of home decor items. Again, the focus of the buyers seems to be on quality and not junk. They were having a very good sale when I visited as well...probably because it was post Christmas. They have other locations (never visited those) and I would definitely stop in to the store again or would like to visit some of the other stores.
