I always enjoy coming to the MG stores, but this one was more like an Eddie Bauer store. Not as old or unique as the others MG stores. Clothes of course are way over priced, as is pretty much everything. The barrels of Candy are...More

I was excited to visit this place while in Asheville. It wasn't exactly what I had imagined but I wasn't necessarily disappointed either. The stock of merchandise is extensive but very expensive. We basically just looked around and the kids got some candy from the...More

I always enjoy a Mast General experience, wether it's the Greenville, Asheville, or Columbia store. Folksy outdoor attire, huge old-fashioned candy section, culinary treats, body care, holiday items and artsy goods are all on display, but beware it can be a little pricy. Knowledgeable staff...More

I enjoyed walking through this store and checking out what they had to offer. It has some neat things and good clothes. The prices are a little high, but that’s to be expected.

Everything is way over priced. I thought the experience would be good so price would not matter as much. Unfortunately that was not the case, they are happy as long as they are talking among themselves don't bother them.

This has the feel of a Cracker Barrel without all the frills. Barrels of taffy and old time candies were my favorite. Tour buses pull up the the curb and drop off passengers. Jewelry over priced.

There is a wine store on Biltmore that have a wide selection of wine, also most of the breweries have stores attached if you are looking for a local specialty beer.

I'd just give a call and ask if this is going to be a consideration for you. Unless it is a service dog you'd have to ask. (828) 232-1883
