Brake job .....

Just had my 2000 wagon in for service and they tell me that my discs are down to 3mm and I should have then done soon. Service manager said it will cost $300 or maybe a little less. After following the recent thread on
brakes this estimate seems high. I live on an island where my only service option is the dealership but I will be in Maryland later this month and could have it done there. Was thinking of trying a mainstream dealership in hopes of a lower cost or possibly a Meineke/Sears/Pepboys operation.
Any advice appreciated .....

I've no idea what they can do as far as brakes/$$, but you can only ask if they'll give you an answer in some ballpark via email. (We think they're reputable after about 7 fords over the years, a 2001 Focus SE the latest one...)
This is the D.C.-suburbs part of Maryland, BTW.
