Jarrolds is still largely privately owned with members of the Jarrold family maintaining significant involvement.
Primarily known as a retail business, Jarrolds has a flagship award-winning department store in Norwich city centre that was designed by George John Skipper (1856–1948) between 1903 and 1905. Sir Nikolaus Pevsner describes Jarrolds the Store as "baroque" in style. Jarrolds also have several specialist outlets in Norwich, as well as shops in Wymondham and Cromer.
The non-retail divisions of the Jarrold Group of Companies include Jarrold Properties, Jarrold Training and St James Facility Management. Its activities previously included Jarrold Publishing and Jarrold Printing.
Of Huguenot ancestry, the Jerauld family arrived in Essex from France in the late 17th century. Samuel Jarrold served as Mayor of Colchester in 1723–24 and during the 18th century the Jarrolds expanded their mercantile ventures throughout East Anglia, becoming established in Norwich. The Jarrolds have joined City livery companies including the Stationers and Haberdashers.
