Some Sram shifters are Shimano compatable and some aren't. TRX happens to be Shimano compatable.

I didn't take the time to check the warehouse on-line but my QBP catalogue lists TRX 7-speed shifters but only in sets. You could also replace it with a Shimano right side only shifter and save around $7.00 or $8.00 but it wouldn't match. The bottom line is that virtually any LBS can get you one. If it was me, I'd just make you pay before I ordered it.

The good news is that it looks to me like the shifter is separate from the brake lever. That'll save you a little money.
