Demolition has begun to make way for a Dan Murphy's store, coming to Batemans Bay.
The liquor franchise, Dan Murphy's, is part of the Woolworths Group and will be built on Orient Street.
The community can expect to walk through the doors of the new store next year.
General manager of format development, Rory Jacob, said construction will start soon.
"Dan Murphy's is extremely excited to be opening a new store in Batemans Bay in 2020," he said.
"Planning is underway and construction expected to start soon.
"We look forward to welcoming the local community and celebrating the store opening with them next year."
A Baulkham Hills-based company, Quasar Constructions, won the tender to build the project.
Dan Murphy's Batemans Bay will become one of more than 220 stores across the country.
Currently, the nearest Dan Murphy's store is at Bega, which opened in 2012.
