This is my kind of browsing store--clothes for men, women, children, souvenirs, household items, everything really, just a great store to browse and not a chain!

I always enjoy a Mast General experience, wether it's the Greenville, Asheville, or Columbia store. Folksy outdoor attire, huge old-fashioned candy section, culinary treats, body care, holiday items and artsy goods are all on display, but beware it can be a little pricy. Knowledgeable staff...More

I enjoyed walking through this store and checking out what they had to offer. It has some neat things and good clothes. The prices are a little high, but that’s to be expected.
