Jessup's of Daytona
Jessup’s of Daytona was originally a hardware store started in 1931 by Charles Jessup. During the Great Depression in the early years of Jessup’s, Charles lived in the back of the original store. Roger remembers him telling of opening the store at 7:00AM and closing at 11:00PM. He explained all of the merchants would watch each other to see who was going to close first. Times were very hard and a merchant could not afford to miss a single sale. Charles’ daughters, Esther and Ruth Jessup Harshaw eventually joined Charles in the business. Their passion for
rather than hardware prompted the change towards the Jessup’s you see today. Ruth’s son Roger, his wife Barbra Leigh, and Dan Harshaw are the present owners. Dan is the great grandson of Charles and therefore represents the fourth generation. 78 Years *How have we done it? Granddad and his daughters Esther and Ruth were honest hardworking people. They treated all costumers fairly and with respect, so we began the third generation with a wonderful, loyal customer base. We are the FIRST merchant in Daytona Beach to sell gold by weight and also the FIRST merchant in Daytona Beach to show costumers the wholesale price sheets on diamonds, so customers can compare.

Price does matter!! Many independent merchants across America are going out of business because they cannot compete with the mass merchandisers on price. Jessup’s is unique. Most of our merchandise is pre-owned. The fact that we buy from individuals, allows us to sell wholesale or below. Pre-owned merchandise, refurbished, with money-back guarantee at below market price. We guarantee our price to be the lowest! Thank you for stopping by, and being part of our Story Barbra Leigh, Dan Harshaw & Roger Harshaw
