The original Mast General Store is not only a great place to shop, it’s a trip back in time. The original store hosts the Post Office and still offers 5 cent-a-cup coffee. In the store you’ll find gourmet country food, cast iron cookware, old-fashioned toys and more. Just 2/10 of a mile down the road, you’ll find the Mast General Store Annex, featuring an eclectic collection of clothing and outdoor gear and the old fashioned Candy Barrel.
