Agree with IC. Not all chain shops are badly managed. And, yes, SS components are pricey, but they do last longer than regular steel exhaust components. Most do use direct fit parts. Stay away from Sears - they tend to use "universal" parts and adapters to make it "fit".

Exhaust work is downright dirty, messy work. It's one job I don't mine letting a shop take care of. I don't care for having to break rusted clamps, pipes apart and getting rust particles in my eyes. I've done it on a few vehicles and as I have gotten older, it's just not worth hassling with.
That's why I switched many years ago to an AC-powered Dremel tool (up to 30,000 RPM) with a heavy-duty cutoff disk. Instead of using a hacksaw for an hour, I can get an exhaust system off in 10 minutes or less (and that's without using a vehicle lift).
