Jarrold 250 Years: A History By Pete Goodrum

In 2020 the Jarrold company celebrates its 250th birthday. From the early days when John Jarrold opened a small shop in Woodbridge, Suffolk, to a thriving business in the present day, this book is the first history of the company in almost a century. An exclusive piece of memorabilia written by local historian Pete Goodrum, this is the story of Jarrold across the last 250 years.

In 1770 John Jarrold opened a small shop in Woodbridge, Suffolk. 250 years later Jarrold is a successful, 21st century company, operating in several sectors.This is a story that begins in the reign of George III, and continues throughout the entire Victorian era. It stretches through the two world wars of the twentieth century and into the new millennium. Based in Norwich since 1823 Jarrold is a company that has embraced the vast social and technological developments of a huge sweep of time. Given unfettered access to the extensive Jarrold Archives, and drawing on some never previously published material.Pete Goodrum has written the first history of the company in almost a century. 

Outstanding indepenent retailers, world class printers, legendary publishers, leading business training providers and visionary property developers, the Jarrold family has, for seven generations, taken the risks, made the decisions and committed itself to commerce and philanthropy.
