Héritage was a banner of discount grocery stores owned by Provigo to market smaller supermarkets in Quebec. Created in the second half of the 1970s to open on original locations, the Héritage banner eventually began to replace some Provigo/Dominion locations in the 1980s after Dominion Stores entirely withdrew from Quebec. The years 1993 and 1994 saw a brief resurgence of new Héritage stores (many of them being in old Steinberg's locations).

The increasing popularity of the Maxi division coupled with the aging image of Héritage had Provigo reconsidering about the future of the chain. In 1995, Héritage was disbanded and its stores were either converted to Maxi or, to a lesser extent, L'intermarché brand.

The first two logos of Maxi used a similar font as Héritage's logo.
