Target Corp. plans to open a new 31,000-square-foot store as part of an apartment complex planned at the corner of Lancaster Avenue and Ardmore Avenue in Ardmore.

The shop will be the Minneapolis-based retailer's eighth location in the Philadelphia region to deploy its smaller-format design aimed at urban and densely settled suburban areas, it said in a release Tuesday.

The store, scheduled to open in July 2019, will employ 50 to 70 people, it said. Inventory will include groceries, cosmetics, baby-care and kids' products, clothing and toys. It will also house a CVS pharmacy.

The store is to occupy the lower two stories of a planned 35-unit apartment building with underground parking, according to a November report by the Main Line Media News that noted neighborhood opposition to the proposal.

The project is being developed by Bala Cynwyd-based RMC Developments LLC, Target said in its release.

Seven small-format Target stores are planned or operating in central Philadelphia, Roxborough and Haddon Township, N.J.
