Ideal Surplus Sales provides items to the Southwest Detroit community for their everyday use. Thanks to the founders of an online market named Tianguis del Area de Detroit, Ideal Surplus has been able to sell products such as janitorial supplies, hand tools, electrical equipment, etc. at affordable prices to the community. Jose Quintero, Ideal Surplus Intern, manages this program. He takes a picture of an item, posts it on Facebook (Tianguis del Area de Detroit), interacts with customers, sets up a time for them to come to Ideal Surplus and negotiates deals. Through social media, Ideal Surplus has been able to show the community that they don’t need to travel far and pay extra money for products that can be found in their very own community.
