150 jobs are expected to be created when a new Waitrose store opens in Evesham, Worcestershire.
Work has started on the store which is expected to be completed in March 2018.
Vic Allison, Deputy Managing Director at Wychavon District Council, said:
We’ve already seen the benefits that having a Waitrose store in town brings from the impact of the Droitwich scheme, and we’re confident Evesham will benefit in a similar way.
Waitrose Development Surveyor, Jonathan Banham, said:
While we appreciate there will be a period of disruption with a project of this scale, we are looking forward to delivering a quality food store that will provide our very latest offer and ensure we make a positive contribution to the town's future.
As with the Droitwich Waitrose store, Wychavon District Council is funding the building of the store in Evesham, which the supermarket chain will lease back from the Council and pay a commercial rent on.
Wychavon will retain ownership of the building.

The new boss of department store chain Debenhams has unveiled plans to close its Lodge Farm distribution centre near Northampton along with 10 smaller in-house warehouses and put up to 10 stores under review.
The warehouse, operated by DHL, employs 220 staff and will shut in two years' time.
Debenhams say they hope to be able to redeploy many staff affected by the smaller warehouse closures.
Sergio Bucher, who took over as chief executive last October, outlined the overhaul that will see the group shut one of its three distribution centres.
Details of his plans came as the group announced a 6.4% drop in pre-tax profits to £87.8 million for the six months to March 4.
