The new store replaces the former Fabb Sofas unit next to TK Maxx on the retail park and will officially open its doors on Saturday, November 26.
Around 70 jobs will be up for grabs when recruitment gets under way in the coming weeks.
A spokesperson for Home Bargains said: "We are delighted to announce our new store at the Capitol Centre in Walton-le-Dale, Preston which will open on November 26.
"With over 30,000 sq ft of space, this will be our biggest store yet in Preston. Due to its size, we will be able to showcase our full range, including chilled, fresh, frozen and bakery products.
"Anyone keen to join our team should keep an eye on our recruitment website — https://jobs.homebargains.co.uk/ — as this new store will create over 70 jobs for local people.”
The new Capitol Centre store adds to Home Bargains’ continued growth across Lancashire, with more than 20 stores across the county.
The retailer already has three stores in Preston - in Market Street, Deepdale Road and Fulwood Central retail park - and a third in Towngate, Leyland which opened last year.
Work is also well under way on a new store – its first ever – in Chorley, where the retailer has taken over both Currys/PC World and Carpet Right to create a large new store on the Alliance Retail Park.
The new Chorley Home Bargains will open its doors on Saturday, November 12.
A spokesperson for Home Bargains added: "We look forward to welcoming new customers to our exciting range of incredibly well-priced products.
"Our new Chorley customers will be able to enjoy our chilled, fresh and frozen ranges.
"This store will create over 50 local jobs, and again, job seekers should visit our dedicated recruitment website."
