Most bike shops with Garage Liability Insurance can't due to clause in the contract.
Depending on where the hole is and the extent of the damage you can buy a plug kit at pretty much any auto pats store and do it yourself.

so many people just wont put a tire on themselves anymore. I mean I typically take mine to the shop because I buy them there, and I like to support local dealers when I can.

But if I'm poor i'll wedge that on myself and use 2 liter coke bottle plastic to protect my rim!

Balancing a tire for street use isnt that hard to do yourself. Spin the tire, heavier side always stops on bottom, mark with grease at the top and repeat a few dozen times, average the distance between marks and place some weight there. Then repeat the process. Its a little tedious without the right equipment, but a kid in high school could do it.

Now if you wanna be going 120mph+ on those tires you might want to have slightly more proper balancing done. But to be frank, if your budget is thin enough that you are concerned about your wheel costs, you shouldn't be driving that fast.
