Mast General Store

Record #:
Opened in 1883, it fulfilled customers’ needs from the cradle to the grave…literally. Mast General Store’s location in Valle Crusis almost lives up to the store’s slogan from that time: “if you can’t buy it here, you don’t need it,” indicated in the accompanied photo. As for the general store nuance of yesteryear, that can be perceived in the chicken coop door on the floor (deterrent for dishonest chicken barterers) and a five cent cup of coffee.
