Dale, Forrest, and all,
While surfing Domenic's web site I checked out their Facebook (FB) page and found personal info about the owner that may interest long-time members of this list, especially thosae who spent time in and around Tempe.
According to Domenic's FB site, the owner (Domenic) has just returned home from the hospital for treatment of blood clots in his lungs. There is a link to the FB site on Domenic's home page:

As a visitor to AZ, I have visited and looked at shops in that area. Mesa is adjacent to Tempe where there are a lot of shops.
I would try Domenic's... they have a long history, into the vintage era. http://www.domenicscycling.com. Landis Cycles are nice shops but a chain and I always am afraid of multi store operations...
Not sure what you mean by "or is fedex the way to go?" I certainly would not pay a FedEx Office store (once Kinkos) to pack a bike... But I WOULD use FedEx Ground to ship it.
Best of luck Dale
