Sweet Hearts for Sweethearts Day: Mast Store's 2019 Hunger Campaign Enjoys 16th Year

This year’s Be a Sweetheart campaign runs February 9th & 10th. All Mast Store locations will ask guests to open up their sweet hearts and help us make a sizeable donation to our food security partners. For each pound of candy purchased, Mast Store will donate a $1. Thus, we are encouraging guests to scoop up a traditional, sweet gift of candy for the sweethearts in their lives this Valentine’s Day and help us give back to our communities in heartwarming and meaningful ways.

Leaving After 32 Years, But With Us Forever

Leaving After 32 Years, But With Us Forever

Ronnie in the shop today.Looking back at 1986, it was a year filled with notable events including the return of Halley’s Comet on its second 20th-century tour through the solar system, the national debut of the Oprah Winfrey Show, and the explosion of the Space Shuttle Challenger just 73 seconds after liftoff. On a much more local level, an employee came to the Mast Store whose work can be seen in EVERY store today and whose influence will be around for a long time to come. Years of sanding, staining, designing, and building are drawing to a close for Ronnie with retirement on the horizon, but as we look around, we’ll see him every day!

New Year, New You, No Resolutions

Happy 2019Tabula Rasa. What a wonderful phrase. But it doesn't mean "no worries." It does, however, mean just what we often need-- a blank slate, a reset, a doorway we step through into a brighter, unmarred future. But are we really prepared to fill that slate with resolutions that, even as we make them, ring hollow and loom too large an undertaking?
