In Short In the 1920s, about 35 years after Bachman's first became a business, Albert Bachman chose purple as the company color. Today, that fleet of purple trucks and delivered purple packages remind people of quality, service and special occasions. At this flagship store, browse through greenhouses and nurseries packed with supplies, plants and landscaping help. Floral shops and specialty gift shops provide the art behind the bouquets, delivering an average of 5,000 packages a week.
