Bookshop chain Waterstones has confirmed that it is to open a branch in Hove.
The national retailer will occupy 90 to 91 George Street.
A spokesman for Waterstones said that the shop is scheduled to open in November, although that may be subject to change.
The store will be the second of two bookshops that Waterstones is due to open in Sussex in the forthcoming months; a branch is also scheduled to open in Rustington, West Sussex, in late October.
Waterstones will have 13 bookshops in Sussex with the two new openings.
