If you have a torch, hit it with some heat to break the epoxy bond, and carefully use a drill and bit to "grab" or bite on the inside of the shaft and pull it out.  There are shaft extractors as well, but if you have the right size drill bit it works just as well.

Edit: If there is still a bunch of epoxy inside the shaft, drill that out first to make things easier.

I would try using an easy out. To turn the broken part of the shaft while heating it hosel.

This is what I'm talking about. Tap in in with a hammer till it bites the broken shaft. Not to hard with the taps though. Then heat the hosel and turn the easy out once its hot

I've never seen one get stuck for good... a tap as mentioned above would likely work as well.

Did you see the big box store personnel try to remove it? Just curious what tools they may have used, and forgive me as I may have made some assumptions about their abilities unnecessarily... I'm seeing a Buddhist about it...

Depending upon the counter bore, you may also be able to tap the inside of the broken shaft and run a bolt all the way through to where it bottoms out. Continuing to tighten the bolt will extract the shaft. You may also be able to collapse the walls of the shaft with a small punch then pull it out. (last option)
All of the above should be done with applied heat.

That's what I do before I'll need to drill it out.  Heat to break down the epoxy is a must step.  Never had a broken tip that could not be extracted, some will take more time and patience.
It'll be tougher if the broken tip has a tip weight in it.  Needs more heat to break down the epoxy.
Or if this is an older club which might have a threaded tip, then it'll need to reverse the broken tip out of the thread.  To loosen it, turn clockwise ( counter clockwise to tighten the tip in the hosel and the with each swing will tighten the thread even more )

No I didn't see it the effort.... but they called me 1 hour after I dropped it off
So they gave up early.
I'm sure any of you guys could do the job
I'll try another today and let you know

Sometimes use heat directed into the hosel for a few seconds will help break up the stubborn epoxy faster, I'll d that with the brass tip weight in the broken tip.
