We enjoyed browsing in this store. There were other customers sitting in rocking chairs with their dogs and this made for a nice environment. The candy at the back of the store is a really nice walk down memory lane and the old fashion toys near the candy is a very nice touch.

Lisa T, I hope you were able to have a seat in those rocking chairs. It's a great way to relax after a day of shopping. Visit again soon More

Need winter clothing ? This is the place. Expensive but it's got every brand plus more - candy section, toy section , food items. Most of all winter clothing - something like Peter Glenn meets Sports authority meets Bass Pro Shop without the fishing gear or shoes . All brands but expensive. Cool place. Downtown area.

They have clothes, shoes, canned goods, beauty products and books..they do have a downstairs that has camping stuff and more clothing and shoes. Parking is limited around... More

While visiting we discovered sale prices on Woolrich jackets for Sherri. We grabbed one at 50% off. Of course we grabbed some sweets while there as well. As usual Mast General made another great day of memories for us.

I was surprised at the great reviews this was given as a "must visit". It really is just an expensive clothing store. They did have some different odds and ends and a large candy selection. Nothing to make a special stop for.

Loved visiting this old-fashioned general store that has seemingly, millions of items that I just can't live without. Lots of old-fashioned candy sold by the pound and goodies of all sorts for Christmas stockings. Good selection of clothing also.

My wife and I were taking the self guided city walking tour and came upon a great store - the Mast General Store. The shop was crowded with people so we decided to check it out. We were glad we did. This store is amazing! It has all sorts of high quality casual clothes, kitchenware, food, books, etc. We were... More
