Warrington Council has signed off plans for a 6,500 sq ft convenience store, on the site of a former petrol station in Rushgreen Road.
The project is being brought forward by Sale-based property development and investment company Brookhouse Group. The occupier of the store is yet to be named.
Development of the store will include parking for 57 cars.
Tom Whitehead, town planning manager at Brookhouse, said: "This is a fantastic result and we now look forward to further progressing the proposal, including confirming the operator.
"As well as bringing this derelict land back into use, the store will offer a number of benefits to the local community. The supportive feedback we received highlighted that many residents are looking forward to the prospect of new jobs and greater choice as well as the chance to carry out more of their food shopping in Lymm instead of surrounding towns."
Earlier this year, nearly 400 people attended a public exhibition on the plans. Responses received during and after the event, indicated that the majority were in favour of the proposal. Planning officers had also recommended that the scheme be approved.
Construction is likely to start later this year with the new store expected to be open in summer 2015. The architect for the store is Cassidy + Ashton.

Plans for a new food store on the former Rushgreen Service Station site in Lymm will be revealed to the public on Friday, May 23.
Developers The Brookhouse Group say it will create 35 jobs and have space for 57 cars.
A public exhibition will take place from 1pm to 8pm in the main hall at the Lymm Youth and Community Centre in Bridgewater Street.
Mike Nuttall, property director at Brookhouse Group said: “Our proposal is aimed at bringing this redundant, brownfield land back into use and offering the local community a number of benefits.
“As well as new job opportunities, the store would provide local residents with more shopping choice and convenience, reducing the need for them to travel out of Lymm for their grocery shopping.
“We have developed a design that uses natural materials and landscaping to complement the semi-rural surroundings and are in discussions with high-quality retailers who have expressed a strong interest in the site.
“We want to find out what local people think about our plans so hope that they will come and talk to us on May 23.
“There will be the opportunity to see visuals, ask questions and provide feedback.”
If planning approval is granted, an occupier would then be confirmed and the store expected to open in 2015.
