Brooklyn Supermarket Honoring The Notorious B.I.G. With Limited Edition Grocery Bags

The Notorious B.I.G. tragically lost his life March 9, 1997, but his legacy lives on not only through his music, but in many aspects of culture that he touched. Even grocery stores.

As a child, Christopher Wallace bagged groceries at Brooklyn’s Met Food Supermarket and on the 20th anniversary of his passing, the store is paying tribute to the rap legend with special edition paper bags.

The Biggie Bags are the creation of Jed Heuer and his wife, Jennifer, who have lived in the area since 2000. There are 100 special edition bags at Key Food, the store that now stands where Met Food was at 991 Fulton Street, that are available for purchase on a first come, first served basis.

“This project is about paying respect to a legendary artist and sharing a piece of neighborhood history.”

Biggie was fatally shot 20 years ago in Los Angeles after attending a party. He died an hour later and the murder is still unsolved.
