Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland will be reopening its branch in Forres a week next Friday.
During lockdown the charity has been losing £500,000 of income per month of income, following the closure of its 45 shops and the postponement of all fundraising events,
The store will be open from 11am-4pm, Monday to Saturday, and will be accepting donations from this Wednesday.
All donations will be quarantined for 72 hours to reduce the risk of contamination.
The charity’s chief executive Jane-Claire Judson said: “We’re taking every precaution to ensure that our shops are clean and safe for customers, volunteers and staff.
“It has been extremely difficult having the shops closed and it has been a really tough situation for our dedicated staff and volunteers.
“As we navigate this new way of operating our shops, we are excited for the future. We can’t wait to welcome back our amazing customers and meet new ones too.
“Many of us have been clearing out during lockdown and we want people to know that their donation means more to us than just a donation.
“It means that with your help, we can continue to support people across Scotland to do more than survive.
“Every donation will help someone to get from hospital to home – and really live again.”
