A pioneer in online gift retail, www.Prezzybox.com was founded by one-man band and managing director Zak Edwards from a barely furnished bedroom in 1999 with not even a phone to hand.
The entrepreneur along with his family has driven the business to what it is today, one of the nations most beloved online gift brands and a successful multi-million turnover business distributing more than 5,000 gifts daily.
The business leader has come to our screens as a retailer on brand new Channel 4 series Buy It Now! The TV show, presented by comedian Brian Conley, offers Britain's latest inventors the chance to put their products in front of potential customers and major retailers.
Pitching innovative toys, gadgets and much more each seller has just 90 seconds to hook the audience and keep them interested upon revealing the retail price – as the customers will be parting with their own money to buy the product.
If they pass this stage by making even just one sale, they are given the opportunity to do business with the retail panel.
With a direct interest in product development and encouraging UK start-up's from day one having always worked with UK suppliers, Edwards says, “We've been in exactly the same position as lots of these guys, scratching around for our first order. It's hard. If we can help in any small way to push their business in the right direction, then that's great! Being on the show was really exciting. It was great to see the passion and unfulfilled rawness of a lot of the inventors as they begin their journey into the World of retail.”
The entertaining and relatable programme could potentially see regular people securing a life-changing order; inspiring Brit's all over the country to chase their dreams and bring their ideas to reality. You can watch Buy It Now on Channel 4 at 5.30pm.
