KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — A new store filled with clothes, knick-knacks and an assortment of other donated items is opening in West Knoxville.

The Knox Area Rescue Ministries is opening the new store at 9329 Kingston Pike, where people will be able to browse while supporting the non-profit's mission to help people experiencing homelessness in Knoxville. The thrift store was previously open for Christmas but closed after the holidays.
