As a freelance writer and translator, I spend a lot of time sitting at my desk, typing. I finally decided to get a good chair and went to Office Environment. I thought I bought a good chair, but it turned out there's a big difference between briefly sitting on a chair in a showroom and sitting on a chair for a few hours in a home-office.
When I contacted OE they didn't care that I am just a one-person office, they kept exchanging chairs until I gave up trying to find a chair that was comfortable for me. And they immediately refunded my money.
Even though I didn't manage to find a chair that fit me, OE still treated me very professionally. Even, though, again, I'm just a one-person outfit.

I wish my boss could read this. The office I work in is desperately in need of a revamp but the boss doesn't see the connection between office furniture and personnel output. I think I may send this to him.

I am not sure if I should be happy when companies merge. Is it a win-win situation when a larger company merge with a smaller company? Who won bigger time with the two?

As an employee who's company was bought by another company and after 2 years was merged with a bigger company, I personally believe that the two transitions were not in favor of the employees. Our new company today is worst. Some benefits were removed. I hope that the Closet Tailors and Office Environments will be successful in the Asheville community. Plus, the employees should have a better life because of the buy out.

Nice collection of flooring products you have available. Would love to see some pictures of some offices that your group has worked on some time.

As a small business, it's vitally important to treat large customers and small customers the same. It sounds like OE has this nailed. Very impressive! We're a small business that has the same philosophy and it's great to see others out there doing the same.
