strange routing issue

I have a strange routing issue. We just recently added an MPLS line to our corporate headquarters. I setup a static route in our router to point all designated traffic that way. Everything works except for something that I just found out about.

It seems that users in the other suite in my building cannot ping any of the IP address's of the parent location. It keeps coming back "request timed out". But all users in my suite can?

Any suggestions why?

I have two HP Procurve 2510 switches (one in each suite) and all of the network is the same segment. No subnets or anything. They are connected by fiber.

Are the two suites on the same subnet? If not, it is possible you don't have a return route for the suite that isn't working.
