Brake rotor question

I just recently had a garage put front brake pads on my '97 200SX. I've
done brakes before, but this time it was easier to pay a garage than get
out in the cold and do it myself. Car has 74000 miles, original rotors,
first time pads have been replaced.
The problem now is a rubbing, scraping sound brakes make at low speed
stops. Garage says rotor has a "hard spot" on it and needs to be
replaced. They said rotors are too thin to "turn" down.
Now, I thought brake pads were the wear item, and the rotors should last
a while. Am I being lied to, or can 74000 miles wear the rotors down
that much? Should I measure the rotor thickness? What is the lower limit?
