Black Friday is more than three weeks away, but Amazon has already started observing the retail holiday.

The e-commerce giant announced the opening of its Black Friday Deals Store on Tuesday.

Not only is the store open weeks before Black Friday, it will remain open for weeks after that big shopping day.

Amazon describes it as “the leading deals destination for customers with tens of thousands of deals, and new deals as often as every five minutes, now through December 22.”

The announcement continues:

Customers can enjoy more deals than ever before this holiday season, including low prices on top gifts such as electronics, toys, clothing, jewelry, kitchen items, and more. … Some examples of the great deals Amazon customers can take advantage of this holiday season include: $20 off the Kindle Paperwhite, savings on an LG 55″ 1080p Curved Smart OLED TV, and up to 40% off select Magformers toys.

Amazon also announced Tuesday:

  • More perks for Amazon Prime members, including hundreds of exclusive deals for voice shopping — meaning using the Alexa interactive voice service available on Amazon devices such as the Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap, Amazon Fire TV or Fire tablet.
  • The 2016 Amazon Electronics Gift Guide, described as featuring “more than 500 of this year’s hottest technology products all in one convenient location” along with “expert reviews and product demonstration videos to help customers find the perfect gift.”
  • The 2016 Amazon Home Gift Guide, described as “a curated list of more than a thousand of this season’s must-have products for the home” and “filled with gift ideas for indoors and outdoors.”
  • The Handmade at Amazon Holiday Gift Guide, described as featuring “curated lists of genuinely handcrafted items sold directly by artisans,” including “products for her, for him, and for kids, as well as handcrafted stocking stuffers for friends and family.”
