The corner shop near where I grew up in Ince was Connie's when I was a child, but my Mam, (who was in her forties when I was born), remembered it being Tom Gregory's, who I imagine was a member of the shop-keeping Gregory family. Apparently, he would split a ha'penny, and used to slip the bacon/ cooked meats etc. off the scale before the scale had properly registered the weight. Consequently, he was known a Owd Tom Slip.
