Does a mechanic sell and install car tires?

Looking for a place where I can buy new tires and have them installed. Since we are also looking for a new mechanic for regular car service, I was wondering if a car mechanic typically also sells/installs tires and if it is a good idea to have that done there? Or would they charge much much more than a "tire place" (I've seen BelleTire, DiscountTire around here and the archives tell me Costco is good as well...)

Car is a 2002 Toyota4Runner and we're in Ann Arbor, MI. We need winter tires. Sorry if this is a dumb question, this is our first car. We don't want to put a lot of time into this, and don't necessarily need the super-cheap option (but it would be nice if it weren't a total ripoff).
