Discount variety retailer Target has pinpointed 10 locations where it will open its smaller-format store concept. The list is composed of urban areas with densely populated central business districts and includes San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, New York and Philadelphia.

Construction of a small-sized 85,000 sq feet store in San Francisco begins next month.

The format is about two-thirds the size of a regular Target store and half the size of a SuperTarget store.
