Mast General Store is located on Hwy 194 in Valle Crucis. The more things change; the more they remain the same. The Mast General Store has changed little over its 100-plus years. It was once known as the store that had everything from "Cradles to Caskets." These items are no longer available, although there is a "coffin" on display upstairs, but many of the staple items for households many years ago that are hard to find now are among Mast's vast product selection. Come in and "set" a spell and listen to the stories the Mast Store has to tell.
