Hi there! You're doing well and you are only off by one word. If the time is not in the store_hours it should be set to False, but you have set it to None. None is a different reserved word in Python than True and False. Note that the Bummer message here says that store_open is not False.

Your very last line should read:

store_open = False

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
