Remove them with a screw driver, or pair of pliers when there are no strings on the guitar. Take them with you to Home Depot (or Ace, or any local hardware store) and get a pair of higher grade galvanized wood screws that are roughly the same size (having them sightly bigger wouldn't hurt).
If you feel that the shop that set the guitar up last was at fault, then by all means, take it back to them, to have them replace the screws. Any legit shop should do it for free.
