    buy them/ones

    A: I need to buy some roses for my sister. Today is her birthday.
    B: Maybe you can go to the Ivy House to buy them.
    -----
    If I use ones instead of them in the sentence, is it acceptable?
    Thanks!

    PS I also posted the same question on this , but all of your answers are unique to me. Hope we can discuss with each other. Thank you.
