弊社取引先、日本からの出張者がマンハッタンのホテル La Quinta Inn Manhattan にハンドクリームをお忘れになりました。弊社のスッッフがホテルに直接お伺いすると、La Quinta Innの方々が同人のハンドクリームを保管しておいてくださりました。
In New York, usually, once you lose or misplace something, it's gone for good.
Our vendor from Japan left his hand cream at La Quinta Inn Manhattan. One of our team members visited the hotel and asked if they found his hand cream.
Guess what! Surprisingly, they actually kept his hand cream.
What miraculous service!!! Usually, it would have been thrown away, or kept by a staff member. Thanks, La Quinta Inn!

We have been very lucky to work with Knoll, such a reputable company for over last 24 consecutive years. We appreciate Jhane Barnes who lead us to get into this business originally in 1988. Certainly it was quite eye opening challenges and excitement.
