so, if it was in the hands of the bike shop, how on earth is it not their fault that the BB shell threads were screwed up?

find a better bike shop or frame builder and have some italian threads cut in, you will probably have to use shimano road bottom bracket cups but it should work. have seen Royce do this to an old LTS frame a few years ago.
