NorthEnd.page reports that the Connah Store, which never failed to give tourists something to chuckle about as they sauntered up and down Hanover Street, but which also provided a late-night spot for both locals and restaurant workers to stock up on some essentials, has closed for the last time, victim of a huge rent increase.
