This week in grocery, Giant and Schnucks add self-service meal options and Momofuku raises millions.

Ahold Delhaize subsidiary Giant Food, which spans 165 locations in the DMV area, announced Thursday (March 23) the launch of its first in-supermarket fast-casual restaurant, a Nalley Fresh location, with self-service ordering kiosks available.
