Fodor's Review

Everything from ribbons and overalls to yard art and cookware is sold here. Built in 1882–83, the store has plank floors worn to a soft sheen and an active, old-timey post office. You can take a shopping break by sipping bottled "dope" (mountain talk for a soda pop) while sitting in a rocking chair on the store's back porch. For more shopping, an annex is just down the road. Under the modern ownership of John and Faye Cooper since 1980, Mast General Store has expanded

to eight locations, including ones in Boone, Asheville, Hendersonville, and Waynesville, but this was the first, and it still has the most authentic atmosphere.
