Cabela's To Offer Camo Mandolins?
By Dave Hurteau
Hey did you know Cabela’s is getting into music instrument business?
From the Mandolin Café:
Thomas L. "Tommy" Millner, Chief Executive Officer of Cabela's, the World's Foremost Outfitter® of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear has announced the acquisition of New Millennium Acoustic Design Carbon Fiber Mandolins of Waterville, Vermont.
The announcement was made on March 31, 5:00 p.m. CDT at the company's headquarters in Sidney.
"Carbon fiber products are an important part of the future of the outdoor entertainment product line Cabela's is known for," said Millner.
"In our continuing position as the world leader in the outdoor sports market, the Board of Directors felt that this superb small niche music company in the heart of the beautiful Vermont mountains was a natural fit with Cabela's corporate philosophy of providing exceptional products to our customer base, and many of those customers are musicians as well as passionate outdoorsmen.
No? Well, neither did Cabela’s. The whole thing, it appears, is an April Fools joke.
