A relatively low population puts Knoxville, Tenn., at the head of a class in a new ranking by Apartment Guide.

Knoxville tops Apartment Guide’s listing of the 10 cities with the highest ratio of Target stores per capita. The Southern town has a population of 187,347 and five Target locations, or one store per 37,469 residents. Number two on the list is Pittsburgh, which has a population of 302,407 and eight Target locations, or one store per 37,801 residents.

The list looks very different, however, when looking at the top cities based on the total number of Target locations. Chicago, with 20 stores, heads the list, followed by Houston, with 15, according to Apartment Guide.

1. Knoxville, Tenn.: Five stores (pop. 187,347):

Pittsburgh is grossly inaccurate. That is the population of the city and only 1 target is in the city. The rest are in the burbs and a population of 1.223 million for the county
