That's pretty much dependent on how much you want to pay and how badly the shop needs to clear inventory, I guess. I don't work at a shop, so I don't really know what their margins run - if you don't get any hits from LBS kids in this forum, I'd try posting in one of the other ones, like the road forum.
I'm guessing their margins are not particularly fat, so working out a lower price may be a little tough, especially at the 7.2 FX's price point. The shop should at least give you some kind of included maintenance deal and/or a discount on accessories for a while after your purchase - for example, when I bought my last bike, I got a discount on clothes and accessories for a month after purchase as well as free drive train, brake, etc...adjustments for several months. A good shop won't likely charge for little tweaky things anyway. Maybe buy the wrench some beer or something. But I digress...
Anyway, summary would be to give negotiating a try, but don't be surprised if it doesn't get you too far.
