The old HMV shop in the centre of Windsor is set to become a Morrisons M.
The shop was one of several that has become empty in the town in recent months, after HMV went into administration.
Morrison M stores are smaller versions of the larger Morrison supermarkets.
Spokesman for the company, James French, said that the store should be up and running at the new Peascod Street premises by the end of the summer.
He said it would be similar inside to the one in Ealing and would concentrate on fresh food such as fruit and vegetables, fish, meat and bakery products, as well as coffee, baked goods and a salad bar.
It will employ about 15 to 20 staff.
The store's arrival has been welcomed by joint president of Windsor District Chamber of Commerce John Handcock.
He said: "It is an extremely good thing that a reliable store like Morrisons is going to fill one of the gaps in Peascod Street and hopefully bring people into the town.
"It is still sad though that HMV has gone."
