Jarrod Schulz, along with his partner Brandi Passante, is one of the main stars on the hit TV show Storage Wars. Jarrod and Brandi run Now and Then Thrift Store, which they stock with finds from storage auctions and other sources. They are known as the “young guns” on the show and have grown to be quite successful over the life of the show even though they are relative newcomers to the storage auction business. When they started out, They had less money available than many of the other bidders, so every purchase needed to be high value and hopefully profitable.
Jarrod began his career by buying items at storage auctions and reselling them at swap meets. After his home became overrun with items, he opened his thrift store, which Brandi assists in running.
He also co-owns Outlaw Apparel, a clothing line that he can frequently be seen wearing on the show.
According to Reality Weekly, Jarrod has a history with the law. In the 1990s, he spent some time in prison for possession of a controlled substance and DUI. After his time in prison, he realized that he needed to make some major changes in his life. He worked for a time in real estate, attending storage auctions as a hobby, before finally opening his thrift store and entering the resale business full-time.
