How long have you had the bike? if it is a '09 it may still be under warranty. certainly have the shop contact Specialized, they may have an issue with that hub.
as for the wheel why can't the shop service it? I am not familiar with these wheels but I would think the freehub body should come off. you may have nothing to lose by trying to squirt soem triflow between the body outside and inside.
$250 for a set of new wheels is not a bad price. you can get cheaper ones, and if you ride alot it never hurts to have a spare wheel set or at the very least a spare rear wheel.
