Join us for a humdinger of a Grand-Opening celebration at our newest "old" location in Winston-Salem! If you were there for our ribbon-cutting on Friday, May 8th, you'll know that we're very excited to be your new neighbors at 516 North Trade Street. We have a big weekend planned at Mast Store Winston-Salem and hope you'll make time to stop by and say hello!

BRD-Winston.jpgWe're excited about carrying on the legacy of the old Brown-Rogers-Dixson Hardware Store, which once inhabited the building. It was the city's largest retailer when it opened in 1928. In addition, it was also one of the South's largest retail/wholesale floors. B-R-D's motto was "The Best Place to Get It." We hope to carry on their fine tradition in a city that is vibrant, alive, and welcoming.

Like every store in the Mast Family, the Winston-Salem location offers everything from southern staples like Moonpies and RC Colas to outdoor gear, shoes, and clothing for the entire family. We also offer many local favorites: Old Mill of Guilford grits and cornmeal, Buck O'Hairen's Sunshine (kept chilled for maximum refreshment in our old-fashioned cooler), and Fulton and Roark's solid men's cologne just to name a few.

Zach, general manager, hails from Boone, is an avid cyclist (he bikes to the store every day), and managed local retailers, Magnolia Bikes and Mock Orange Bikes, before joining us at Mast. Laura, Mercantile department manager, is coming home in a sense. She served in that same role at the Boone Store for the last several years. Laura grew up in the Triad and studied at Guilford Tech and Randolph Community College. Jackie, the Fashion Department manager, brings a wealth of retail experience from her 18 years at Belk’s. Leigh, the store’s Outdoor department manager rounds out the group with her 12 years of experience working with the Great Outdoor Provision Co.

Mark your calendars to catch live music performed by local bands on all three days including:
George Smith - May 15, 5 p.m. - 7 p.m.
Justin Crissman & Bryan Bogenberger - May 16, Noon - 2 p.m.
