I've had disappointing service from Apple stores, and great service from
their HQ. Given the runaround the "Genius" bars are earning a
reputation for, you may find that it actually takes less time to mail
the battery to Apple than wait for anything that might happen through
the store. Heck, you could probably strap it to a carrier pigeon and
have it back in less time than a "Genius" would spend enumerating the
many reasons he can't help you in the store. :)
It may even be that it's not possible to do this in the store. The last
battery recall I was affected by gave explicit instructions only to
contact Cupertino or your local regional office for replacements:
Hopefully the page for your recall will be as clear.
Good luck. Being without a battery is a drag.
