Published date: March 2019

Jarrold - Norfolk's Very Own Department Store

Jarrold was founded in Woodbridge, Suffolk in 1770 and today its flagship store is situated in the centre of Norwich, in the historic St James Mill. This independent department store is considered by many as the county’s favourite and has been serving Norfolk for more than 200 years. With an emphasis on excellent customer service and offering a personal service, Jarrold will hopefully remain on the high street for many more years to come.

A wide selection of products and services are available over 5 floors, from food and drink to homeware, fashion, gifts, books, toys and beauty. Stocking many popular brands, Jarrold also buys from local artisans and producers, which helps to keep the store different from its competitors. With more than 50 departments and many exclusive and individual ranges, visit Jarrold and see why it is still a firm favourite amongst locals and visitors alike.

Like other department stores, Jarrold has a variety of different locations within the store that offer food and refreshments, including its new deli, wine bar and food hall. Located in the basement, the deli stocks a whole host of fine produce such as pates, cheeses, quiches, sausage rolls, pies, cooked meats, tarts and cakes. Enjoy a carefully selected glass of wine or beer to complement their cheese and meat boards. The deli and food hall stocks an excellent range of organic oils and vinegars, fine wines, speciality beers, ciders, chocolates and a vast number of gins and other spirits. Many of these are locally produced in Norfolk and Suffolk, so if you are visiting the region, Jarrold is a great place to pick up local gifts. Check out their gift hamper selection, including their ‘Taste Of Norfolk Celebration Hamper’, ‘A Trio Of Norfolk Gins Gift Box’ and ‘The Norfolk Gin Hamper’ or create your own.
