The story behind our Bachman’s partnership

Lunds and Byerly’s note: Bachman’s, a local, family-owned company, has been our valued partner since 1968, when our very first Byerly’s store opened in Golden Valley.

In 1968, Bachman’s set forth on a path that was to revolutionize the floral industry – marketing cut flowers via Bachman’s European Flower Markets. Ralph Bachman and Don Byerly, Sr. partnered to open the first European Flower Market at Byerly’s in Golden Valley on April 1968. The kiosk occupied a 500 square-foot area and sold inexpensive cut flowers and plants.
