The Jarrolds Group is a Norwich–based company that was founded in 1770 in Woodbridge, Suffolk,. It moved to Norwich in 1823. It is privately owned, with members of the Jarrold family still having a significant involvement in running it.
It is principally known as a retail business, with a flagship department store in the centre of Norwich that was designed by George John Skipper (1856–1948) between 1903-5. Nikolaus Pevsner describes it as "baroque" in style. There are also several specialist shops in Norwich, as well as shops in Wymondham and Cromer.
The company sponsored the construction of a new stand at Norwich City F.C.'s Carrow Road football ground, now known as The Jarrold Stand, and the original 4-year sponsorship deal has now been extended through to 2013.
