I'm trying to recall the name of a novel or short story that I read in mid-4th edition. The only details that I can recall at the moment are that the story involved a hag (a night hag, I believe) who was posing as a female clerk or attendant in some kind of shop, and that the shop owner was aware of the hag's identity.

Not much to go on, but I figured a hag posing as a beautiful shop clerk was odd enough that someone might remember it.

That sounds like the novel the Circle of Skulls with the Night Hag being Maranyuss and the bookshop was called Curious Pages in Waterdeep.

The OP's description also sounds somewhat like Ei-Vene the Embalmer, Old Mebbeth the Midwife, and Young Marta the Seamstress - a triad of "aspects", "fragments", or "parallel lives" of the ancient Hag, Ravel Puzzlewell. Each of these fine ladies offers the Nameless hero of Planescape: Torment their goods and services and favours ... for a price.
