Abstract: We present an example in ZFC of a locally compact, scattered Hausdorff non-Gruenhage space $ D$ having a $ G_\delta $-diagonal. This means that Gruenhage spaces are not necessary for the construction of strictly convex dual norms on dual Banach spaces, answering a question posed by Orihuela, Troyanski and the author. In addition, we show that the Banach space of continuous functions $ C_0(D)$ admits a $ C^\infty $-smooth bump function.
