Hello I recently purchased a rose plant from a local store and I started to notice powder mildew growing on it and I’m wondering is there anything that I can do to save the plant ?

there are commercial anti-fungal sprays available. Follow all label directions. Placement of the bush in full sun with proper airflow to keep the leaves dry will also help. See:
