Buying equipment along the way

Are there any decent shops along the way (before the Sierras ideally) that I could buy ice axes, crampons, replacement shoes should I need them? Or do people generally order somewhere online and get them mailed ahead? Obviously I'm from outside the US so it's not really possible for me to get new gear, etc, mailed from home and my pack weight is already at 28 pounds without a bear canister so I don't want to have to potentially carry an ice axe/spikes too.
