Supermarket chain Morrisons is to open a new store in South Croydon on Saturday.
The Brighton Road shop, a branch of its convenience brand M Local, will be opened by pupils from nearby St Peter's Primary School at 9am.
The store, at former site of the Red Deer pub, will create 20 jobs.
Wajahat Malik, store manager, said: "We’re really pleased to be bringing Morrisons M local to South Croydon and will work hard to be at the heart of the local community.
"We really want our store to be more than a place for fresh food, we want it to be a hub for local people and local events."
The shop's usual opening hours will be 6am to 11pm.
