Python Object-Oriented Python (retired) Objects Create a Class with a Method

Cant figure out how to complete code challenge

My code is attached, maybe 'open' is a reserved word?

class Store:
  open = 9;
  close = 10;

  def hours():
    return "We're open from {} to {}.".format(open, close);

Accidentally added semi-colons, but this was not the problem!

Here, open being a key word shouldn't be the issue. Methods require "self" as its first argument. So your hours method should include the argument self, and when referencing the variables make sure to prefix them with self. -- like self.variable1 -- this ensures that you're dealing with the specific instance of the class.
