Amazon will host a spring sale next week with discounts on seasonal items, and this one is not restricted to Prime members.

Amazon said Thursday that the event, which its calling the Big Spring Sale, will run for six days starting March 20, in North America. Unlike the Prime Day discount bonanza typically held in the summer, next weeks event will be open to shoppers who dont pay for a Prime membership. The subscription program costs $139 per year, or $14.99 a month, in the U.S., and perks include free, speedy shipping; video streaming; and access to exclusive Prime Day deals.

Spring fashion, fitness products, outdoor furniture, Amazon-branded devices and other warm weather essentials are among the categories that will be discounted, Amazon said. Its the first time Amazon has held such an event in the first quarter.

In recent years, Amazon has added shopping events, including a Prime Big Deal Days in the fall, a 48-hour Pet Day and a beauty-focused sale ahead of the holiday shopping season.

The company is launching its spring event as shoppers, grappling with high inflation, remain hungry for discounts.
