NEW LONDON -- There's another light turned off on New London's Main Street.

The town's only hardware store closed last week "until further notice" without any apparent warning or explanation from the store's owners, Brad and Harriet Connor.


Next door, the realty business also owned by the Connors is dark. Farther down the block, the town's only grocery store remains closed after its new owner was dealt a tough economic blow in April.
