(CNN) -- Dollar General is bucking the retail trend.
It has announced plans to open hundreds more stores.
The discount chain announced Thursday it plans to open 900 new stores in 2018-- for the second year in a row.
Dollar stores are one of the few retail groups thriving, while many traditional brick-and-mortar retailers have been eclipsed by the growth of e-commerce.
According to the company-- by the end of the year, more than three in four Americans will live within five miles of a Dollar General.
Dollar General did not say how many new jobs the openings could create.
