The Black Friday 2011 ad for CVS has leaked, and yes, it's not Walmart Black Friday ad or a Target Black Friday ad, but it's still something.

The sale begins on Thursday, November 24th (Thanksgiving) and continues through to Saturday, November 26th, the day after Black Friday 2011. CVS is a "drugstore," so you're not going to see appliances or the like, but you can find food, personal care, toys, small electronics and seasonal items at the store.

Western U.S. shoppers might recall CVS' acquisition of Longs Drugs. On August 12, 2008, CVS announced that they would acquire Longs Drugs Stores, in a deal worth $2.9 billion. Longs had operated 521 stores in the Western United States, with 41 of the stores in Hawaii alone, and a heavy concentration in California. This followed up CVS' 2006 acquisition of Sav-On Drugs, also primarily in California. The deal closed on October 30, 2008.

For one, you can find a Sylvania 7" Touch Screen Tablet (wi-fi only) for $94.88. In addition, the store's Black Friday 2011 sale includes a buy one get one free toy promotion.

There are a number of clothing items for sale, including L'eggs with B1G1 pricing. There is a significant amount of food, including a lot of alcoholic beverages for sale, as well.

A number of over-the-counter medicines are available, too, and there are doorbusters as well. Doorbuster items are those that a retailer will price so low that customers will want to "bust down the doors" to get them. They are always in limited supply.
