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

Not sure where I'm going wrong, not returning the string?

class Store(): open = 9 close = 5

def hours(self):

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

Does't work for whatever reason, thought it looked good to me.

method.py
class Store():
    open = 9
    close = 5

    def hours(self):

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

You're very close!

:point_right: You forgot to use "self" when referring to your attributes in the format function.
