James F. Roten
The city of Fort Collins is undoubtedly to be congratulated in having in its midst so many prosperous merchants. That this should be so is a significant tribute to the durability and stability of the city's growth and business importance. The various stores bear evidence of prosperity and perhaps in no line is this more evident than in those of the furniture trade, in which line we have Mr. James F. Roten. Mr. Roten has premises located at 209 Jefferson street, and carries a full line of new and second hand furniture. He has been in business for seven years and has built up a very large and increasing trade and enjoys the confidence of his numerous friends and patrons.
Mr. Roten hails from North Carolina and is an industrious and upright merchant as also a respected citizen.
