Morrisons has announced that it will open in Whitstable on Wednesday, October 22.
The brand new convenience store, Morrisons M Local, will bring 20 new jobs to the area when it opens its doors in the High Street.
The supermarket says it believes it has spotted a "gap in the market" for a convenience store that will offer more fresh food, instead of tins and toiletries.
Store Manager Leanne Smith said: “We are proud to be opening an M local in Whitstable and creating 20 new jobs for local people.
“Fresh food will be at the heart of our store and as a team we will work hard to be a positive addition to the local community."
It replaces the Cain's Amusement arcade.
The new store will also feature a Food to Go section with fresh coffee, bacon sandwiches, pastries and a salad bar.
The store will open 7am to 9pm every day.
Morrisons M Local shops are smaller branches similar to Tesco Express and Sainsbury's Local convenience stores.
As many as 70 branches opened across the country last year - a number that was boosted by Morrisons' purchase of Jessops, Blockbuster and HMV stores from administrators.
