Mast General Store
WaySearch 630 West King Street Boone
The Boone store has a long tradition of retailing. The building was
constructed in 1913 and 1917. One side of the building was actually
a bank at one time - The People's Bank. Other tenants of the building
included a five and dime, a restaurant, and one of the first radio
stations in this area. In 1940, a local gentleman named Guy Hunt opened
his department store and provided locals with a wide selection and
friendly, down-home service. Hunt's occupied the building until 1987.
Now, Mast Store's Old Boone Mercantile is brimming with items from
all areas of the Mast Store - mercantile with its cast iron cookware,
coffees, and Amish rocking chairs; outdoor and shoes with brand names
like Rockport, Asolo, Danner, Lowa, Royal Robbins, Solstice, Sierra
Designs, and Jansport; fashion featuring Woolrich, Flyshacker
Flannels, handknit sweaters by Northern Isles, and Columbia
Sportswear. Also at the Boone location is a treat for young and
old alike - 500 old-fashioned, hard-to-find candies overflowing from
barrels. Family Fun Magazine calls it "better than Halloween."
