It's very hard to ID a rose from one picture of the bloom. My suggestion would be to go back to the grocery store you bought them at and ask to talk to the person that orders their flowers. They should be able to tell you what they ordered.

Seil gives good advice, as usual.

Just want to warn you that, unfortunately, most florist varieties of roses grow well inside the controlled conditions of a greenhouse, but not in the open air of our gardens.

I have tried a few, and had to spray them constantly to prevent fungus diseases. The blooms were also smaller when grown outdoors.

Let's hope that is one of the few that do grow well outdoors.

There is a variety available for the home grower, Hot Princess, that looks a lot like your rose. You'll have to hunt around for it, it isn't readily available from local garden centers.

The only one that can be deep pink with ruffles is Yves Piaget. See the images in the below link:

I am certain that the OP's rose is Hot Princess, it is used as a florist rose. I grow it, and it has the same characteristics when it opens. Yves Piaget is similar, but isn't sold in the florist trade.
