Since I have not changed a bike tire in 30 years I think the LBS will get the work.
No reason to replace your rims, ghod forbid. You should be fine with any tire down to 700x28c. The Panaracer Paselas are a reasonable choice, and they're very easy to get on and off the rims. And the tubes that fit a 700x32c (the usual stock size on a Volpe) will fit a 700x28c.
If you want to replace the tubes, you can carry one of the current ones as a spare.
Just do it yourself. This is a skill you need to have.
