What are you talking about? Certainly you aren't trying to defend gsoboi and all of his nonsense...

I have been to DRM and it's not what I would call a real grocery store...I would hate to have to do all of my shopping there - it would severely limit my food choices. If it qualifies, then MANY downtowns have grocery stores but just don't realize it.

The Mast store is now officially open! Ribbon cutting yesterday, and grand opening activities planned for next week. I plan to avoid the place for at least a month or two until the crowds wane a bit. Nice to see it finally happen, though.

I'm looking forward to checking it out (I'll wait for the crowds to die down a bit also). I've never been to a Mast General.

Glad the place is open. Looking back through this thread, there was a lot of commentary from people who aren't familiar with the store and didn't "get" it's brand. Some of what Mast does is nostalgia: trivets and enamel mugs and cast-iron skillets. But a lot of what they do is outdoor gear, lifestyle brands, home goods, etc. The one in Columbia does well, as does the one in Greenville, SC, and neither are in the mountains (as some have suggested that it's exclusively a mountain brand). Heck, even if it was, proximity to mountains and the sheer volume of App State alumni would help that go a long way.

Plus it fills a pretty solid niche in Winston. Great Outdoors Provisions is nice to have, but lacks options for customers who don't want to spend 60 dollars for a pair of shorts. Mast offers some of the high end outdoor brands, but also carries a much wider selection, in terms of price and style.

And yes, the Chapel Hill store was a misstep. It was in the building where Carolina Brewing is now, and it lasted less than a year. That was a good while ago, however, and Mast has gotten much better at this. I like the location, helping to tie the 4th and 5th street corridors with Trade St., and we'll be headed in with some regularity. I've lived in several towns with a Mast and have found myself visiting a lot.

I agree. It should be a good fit in W-S... and good for downtown W-S.

I love the signage...and it's lit at night, which adds to the area.

I am moving to Winston Salem by September 1. I am so excited to read this information. There may be nothing in the store that I can use or afford, but heck it's fun to look. To those of you with positive posts, thank you!!
