Ben Friedland of Lucky's Market offers advice for getting on and, just as importantly, off the shelf as natural retail evolves.

Demos are one tried-and-true way for brands to boost sales, but today's competitive retail environment requires more.

Or share photos, music or other kinds of content that can create a better retail experience around your product?

Ben Friedland, vice president of marketing at Lucky's Market, provides some insight into a few creative and mutually beneficial ways his stores seek to work with brands as they move customers down the "digital loyalty funnel" and to the checkout.
