I have never changed chainrings on a crank in 40 years of cycling. I knew they were available, but it was always a very high-end kind of component - like something you'd MAYBE do for a Dura Ace or Super Record crank. When I've changed cranks it was because I broke a crankarm or wanted a different system. If the chainring was worn out, I figured the crank was too... and I've broken enough cranks to not want it to happen again.

Maybe the shop is not being totally square with you, but I don't see that they're ripping you off. It is not a very common task.
