'Create a Class with a Method' code challenge

stuck on this code challenge. This is what I have but it's not working.

class Store:
  open = 8
  close = 6

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

Hi Jonathan,

You're almost there, the only mistake in your code is your reassigning your class variables within the method where as you want to be referencing them with self, also self.string isn't valid as classes don't inherit a method called string.

class Store:
  open = 8
  close = 6

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

Of courseee!!!! "self" thank you Chris!
