PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

A new small-format Target store is set to open in the uptown Phoenix area, specifically at 1625 E. Camelback Road.

Doors open on Sunday, July 23 at 8 a.m. and get there bright and early because complimentary reusable bags will be provided to the first 1,000 guests.

According to a release, the 50,000-square-foot store, which is about three times as small as the regular-sized stores, will include store services such as CVS Pharmacy, Starbucks and Target Mobile and Order Pickup.

These new stores will be placed in densely-populated areas, mainly urban neighborhoods and near college campuses. 

This is the first small-format store in the Phoenix area, and it will employ about 90 people.

Target will open 30 small-format stores in 2017, and according to the company's website, there are plans to fully renovate 500 stores in 2018 and 2019.
