you need anew LBS period! most bike shops deal with more than one supplier. you need a square spindle that matches your cranks. you can use either a BB that has seperate axle and cups or a cartridge style both can be nutted or use bolts to hold your cranks.
chances are the 'mechanics' at that shop can only replace a shiman part 3726 that is broke with a new part 3726. I had seen a number of guys do that at a place I worked. if someone asked for something we did not have on the shelf they had no clue what would work to help the customer.
