Excellent service, good demeanor of employees, very helpful and welcoming. I went into the store as part of a scavenger hunt for a leadership weekend at Appalachian State University for incoming transfer students. This store kind of reminds me of a Cracker Barrel without the noisy restaurant.

They were having a tent sale out back while we were there and it was impressive. Great deals, huge tent, including a dressing room, port a potty, and a checkout counter. If you come across their tent sale... Go!

Great store and a great tent sale this past weekend. We made out like bandits with Sperry top-siders and jackets at unbelievable prices.

Heard so much about this place & it is very nice. They have nice things, but, way to pricey!!! Not gonna pay those prices. More for the tourist & college kids.

I always enjoy my visits to Mast General Store. The fist thing I do is get a fresh popped bag of popcorn. I then get lost in the candy isle as I take a walk down memory lane enjoying all my old favorites.

Stopped with family just for fun. Loved all the candy. My daughter had fun here. Some things over priced but a fun place to walk around in.

I always buy something at Mast General Store-- the children love it. Very good clothing inventory of specialty items. This was my first visit to the Boone location. Cokes in the bottle, old school toys, candy and cold weather wear-- a must do --
