Not yet open

Postby hyperconjugated » Tue 01.19.2010 7:13 am

I would like to say [about a store]:

..but it's not open yet. I think they'll open at 9 o'clock.
...でも、まだ営業を開始していないんです。 9時に開店されると思います。/ 9時に開店すると思います。

It's closed at this hour.
今 閉まっています / 休みです。

----
Are these correct? How do they say this in natural Japanese?

IANANS but I would say.
まだ開いてないけど、9時からだと思います。
今は閉まっています・閉店しています。

That was fast, thanks a lot Becki. I was thinking that "9時からだ" might also work but wasn't sure.
