The Mast General store in downtown Greenville has been a retail landmark since the late 1800s when it was a shoe and dry goods store. It is probably best known to long-time Greenvillians as the "old Meyers-Arnold," a locally-owned retailer which carried everything from housewares and lingerie to men's shoes and linens. After Meyers-Arnold closed its downtown location, several other retailers occupied the building at 111 North Main Street including a public market featuring several vignettes and small shops.
Today, this downtown emporium has been restored to its 1920s' grandeur featuring fixtures from the era and other mementos from the past displaying Mast's unique blend of traditional clothing for men and women from such names as Woolrich, Flyshacker and Northern Isles. You'll also find a complete outfitters department featuring hiking and camping gear, boots, and casual footwear from The North Face, Sierra Designs, Kelty, Columbia, Royal Robbins, Asolo, Clarks, Keen, and more. Mast's signature items can be found in the Mercantile Department, which is just brimming with cast iron cookware, pottery, handcrafted soaps, and gourmet foods, old fashioned toys, and a candy section featuring over 500 old-fashioned hard-to-find candies.
