If they don't fix it, tell us the name of the LBS.
Music was better when ugly people were allowed to make it ....

If you get no joy there, there are Instructions here
Disc brakes, can make a rumbling noise as the surface of the disc rubs between the calliper. In any case:
- check there is not contamination or cracks, marks etc on the surface of the rotor.
- Check the calliper is firmly attached to the bike and isn't at all loose.
- Check you have a thin amount of daylight either side of the rotor when the brake is off.
- Check the rotor is firmly attached to the wheel, not at all loose.
If you spin the wheel and look at the rotor edge on, you should be able to see any bend or wobble in it.
