A new radiator is going to run around $150.00. Labor for the 4 cylender is.7hr with a std trans. If you have an automatic flat rate is.9hr. So determine what the mechanic's hourly rate is and go from there.
The only other thing is coolant (around $5.00 Gal) You shouldn't be charged for more than 2 gallons because it needs to be mixed 50 50 with water for the strongest solution. If the shop is using dexcool coolant (GM brand which can't be mixed with any other brand) the price of coolant per gallon may be slightly higher. If that is the case, request GO5 Gold which can mix with any coolant.
I hope this helps, if you have any other questions, let me know. If they say you need hoses, I'll help you with prices there too.
