  • This store had everything; for hikers, women and men shoppers, children and pets. I could have spent all day in this store! Best of the best! 
  • I was very disappointed to find that all the merchandise was made in China. I was hoping for a real general store experience. 
  • Mast General has something for everyone of all ages. From hiking gear that's sure to please, cool socks and quality clothing, accessories and more.....then there's the lower level filled with childhoo...  read more »
  • Fun spot to lose an hour on a rainy afternoon - they have a huge selection of outdoorsy clothes, folksy home goods, "penny" candy, and toys. They occasionally have good sales that make their wares more available to the masses. Otherwise, most things are priced for the wealthier tourist crowd.
  • I was really surprised by the size of this Mast General Store, thinking that Waynesville wouldn't have one that big. The whole bottom level was the candy and food ( I don't recall ever seeing one that had 3 levels), the main level was clothing, hats, etc. and had another section off it that was just the shoes, and then the third level was the camping gear. It didn't have as much camping/hiking gear as others, but we found a couple things we wanted there. The employees were great, very friendly and helpful. I love Mast General Store, and I will definitely go back to this one when we are in the area again.
  • Step back in time and enjoy all the wares of Mast General Store in lovely downtown Waynesville. This downtown staple has a vast selection of pretty much anything and everything: from camping gear, to clothing, penny candy and a wide selection of gifts, the three floors are stocked full for your shopping pleasure.
  • Great outfitter/clothes/shoes store. Staff very helpful and friendly. If they don't carry an item you need they will tell you where you can find it in Waynesville.
  • Great location for MGS. The selection here is not as comprehensive as other locations I've visited, but the staff are super friendly and helpful. On busy weekend days I would recommend parking in the free city lot about a block back from main street.
