Stuck at step 2

I get a NameError for close because close isn't defined but I don't get why

method.py
class Store:
  open = 9
  close = 11
  def hours(self):
    string = "We're open from {} to {}".format(open,close)
    return self.string

"self" and "open" are attributes and need to be referenced using "self." "string" is not an attribute.

class Store:
  open = 9
  close = 11
  def hours(self):
    string = "We're open from {} to {}".format(self.open, self.close)
    return string
