Coronavirus concerns have forced Mast General Store to delay its long-anticipated opening in downtown Roanoke. The company had already hired a full complement of workers and was planning open next month.
NEWS RELEASE: As you can imagine, the COVID-19 situation has and continues to be difficult to navigate while opening a new Mast General Store and maintaining business across NC, SC, and TN. As of yesterday all Mast General Stores shut their doors to the public while maintaining our online store and curbside pickup options.
We are monitoring the situation day to day with plans to open in Roanoke and elsewhere when it is safe. Based on CDC recommendations, we will not have pre-opening celebrations and will likely have a quiet opening.
We look forward to joining the Roanoke community as soon as it is safe.
