Why oh why doesn't this work

Now, add a method named hours that returns "We're open from {} to {}.". Replace the first placeholder with the open time and the second with the close time. Remember you need to pass keywords to .format() if your placeholders have names.

What is wrong with my code? Thanks for any help

method.py
class Store:
  open = 9
  close = 9

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

Never mind figured it out! It was an indentation error on my part where I defined my method

The function needs to be indented to become a method of Store.

class Store:
    open = 9
    close = 9

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

There is an indentation problem. The code should look like this:

class Store:
  open = 9
  close = 9

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