Earlier this week Cabela’s announced it’s initial IPO. Today, Manny Howard writes in the New York Times about the cultural experience of the Cabela’s superstore, which he describes in mildly squeamish terms as “unblinkingly red in tooth and claw.”
One interesting fact from the article is that the Cabela’s phenomenon all started with Dick Cabela tying flies at his kitchen table in Chappell, Nebraska in 1961.
