KARM Stores on Merchants Drive


KARM Stores on Merchants Drive is one of the largest locations across the organization and offers extended shopping hours for you to find the perfect item for your closet, living room, or kitchen. We’re conveniently located in Merchant Village Shopping Center near Outback Steakhouse and Mandarin House on Merchants Drive near Interstate 75.

You can preview some of the latest items in our store on Instagram or, better yet, sign up to receive a daily or weekly e-mail with the latest finds delivered directly to your inbox.

Come donate, shop, and volunteer to be a part of restoring lives in Jesus’ name through Knox Area Rescue Ministries.


A volunteer experience at KARM Stores includes a meaningful project that directly impacts the guests at Knox Area Rescue Ministries. You will see how donations are redeemed for dollars and your efforts will play an integral part in maximizing our ability to meet the needs of the poor and homeless.

Volunteer opportunities exist in every area and at every location of KARM Stores. You may find yourself accepting donations and sorting them in the donation processing center. Or you may be organizing and displaying items on the sales floor. Regardless of the project, you’ll be a part of providing Every Person. Every Meal. Every Day. at Knox Area Rescue Ministries.

We’ve set aside regular times when you can donate your time at this location. To sign up, click the link.

If you prefer to volunteer at a different time or have questions, contact the team directly.
