The North Country Trail Association would like to congratulate the fine folks at Midwest Mountaineering in Minneapolis, MN for their selection as SNEWS-Backpacker Magazine’s 2010 Outdoor Retailer of the Year. Midwest, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2010, was nominated by over 100 people…many of them, no doubt, satisfied Midwest customers.
They have supported many trail groups and outdoor non-profits in Minnesota and Wisconsin, including the North Country Trail Association. Their motto is “Sharing Passion for the Outdoors.” They certainly do that during their biannual Outdoor Adventure Expos. Be sure to check out the 50th Expo this April 23-25 and tell them CONGRATS!!!
On their website, they say…
“That’s right folks – we’ve just been selected as the Outdoor Retailer of the Year by Backpacker Magazine and SNEWS. A big huge THANK YOU to you – OUR CUSTOMERS – for your support over the past year(s). We enjoy working for you!”
We certainly enjoy having Midwest Mountaineering as a friend of the North Country Trail. They are a fantastic company and are well deserving of the Outdoor Retailer of the Year recognition!
