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

I have no idea how to create a method for this object

I think I'm doing it right, but it's not showing up right, and Treehouse is not giving me a hint. Is it because I'm using 'self' as an argument? am I doing the .format() thing wrong?

class Store(object):
  open = 9
  close = 7
  def hours(self):
    return "We're open from {} to {}.".format(open, close)

Hello Zack.

I think you are pretty close, but I see something is missing in the last set of parenthesis.

open and close are attributes of the Store class, so if you want to access them in the hours method (that takes self as argument), you will need to specify that. So for instance: self.open

Same thing for the close attribute.

I hope I made it clear.
