Cabela’s Names Garmin Hunting Vendor of the Year!



Today we’re excited to announce that Garmin has received Cabela’s Vendor of the Year award for the hunting category. Cabela’s presented the Garmin team with the prestigious award during a meeting at the Garmin headquarters in Olathe, Kan.

“As the first non-firearm and non-ammunition vendor to receive this award for the hunting category, we’re thrilled that our hard work and close relationship with Cabela’s has been recognized,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “We’re excited for the future, and to continue our close working relationship with Cabela’s.”

Vendor of the year awards were presented to select partners based on several specific measures directly influencing sales, customer service goals, inventory, margin and other contributing factors. This award is a result of the strong performance of outdoor handhelds like the eTrex® and Oregon® series, as well as the dog tracking and training products, including the Delta series, Astro® and Alpha®.

“Our success would not be possible without the relationships we have with our vendor partners,” said Roger Verhulst, Cabela’s Senior Vice President of Merchandising. “Of the thousands of vendors we work with, these partners truly stand above the rest for the collaboration they’ve demonstrated over the past year. We are pleased to recognize this very select group and are grateful for their commitment to both our business and our loyal customers.”
