Jarrolds is a large, family run department store in Norwich, England. It is situated at the corner of Exchange Street and London Street. The business was founded in 1770 in Woodbridge in Suffolk, moving to Norwich in 1823. The current building was designed by George John Skipper (1856–1948) between 1903-5. Nikolaus Pevsner describes it as baroque in style.

The Jarrold department store has been through a major refurbishment on its ground floor. Its main rivals in the city are the John Lewis Partnership and House of Fraser department stores.

It is a part of the Jarrold and Sons group of companies, which includes Jarrold Properties and previously included Jarrold Publishing prior to its sale to Sutton Publishing.

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.
