How We Got Our Name?
The name Jerrol’s came from our founders’ (Don and Irene Williams) sons’ names. Three letters from Jerry, and three from Rolf, with an apostrophe s for ownership.

In 1947 through the mid-sixties we were known as Jerrol’s Handy Stop/Shop. There is some confusion on the stop/shop bit and we have advertisements and such both ways.
In the late sixties the handy stop/shop was dropped. Around 1985 we added the Book & Supply Co. to reflect our true product selection. Most of our customers prefer to think of us as just Jerrol’s which is perhaps a more intimate name and just fine by us.
