bachman's tour

You can go behind the scenes at Bachman's flagship store on Lyndale Avenue in South Minneapolis, on the original site of the Bachman family farm. This floral, home, and garden center has over 200,000 square feet of retail space and features a dramatic gift and home décor shop, exquisite fresh flowers, a wonderful array of green and blooming plants, seasonal and holiday accents, garden plants, trees and shrubs, and lawn and garden products.

During your tour of Bachman's on Lyndale, you'll learn about the local history and how we process approximately 400 incoming orders every day, and up to 800 orders on busy days! You'll also visit the design areas where our talented floral and plant designers create bouquets, centerpieces, and designer plant baskets for sale in the store or for delivery in our signature purple trucks. Other sights include our floral coolers, the delivery garage and order processing center, the indoor and outdoor greenhouses, and our gift and home décor areas.
