Its processes are being manually operated by the owner and the employee, based on the owner's experience and observation. Additionally, this organic grocery store also faces a sharp decline in sales due to disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, this organic grocery store has recorded a loss of 309,724 baht from expired inventories and received more complaints about the shortage of items since the start of the pandemic. Therefore, this study aims to analyze the inventory management system of this organic grocery store and recommend the inventory management policy for cost reduction This study conducted ABC Inventory Analysis to classify the importance of inventory items by using annual sales as criteria, then selected inventory category A to be population. There were 250 SKUs in the inventory category A. This study calculated the total cost of inventory in the category A. Then, the items' demand was analyzed based upon its seasonality, and Economic Order Quantity, annual order frequency, cycle time, safety stock, and reorder level were calculated. After that, the Economic Order Quantity policy was applied to the constant demand items and the Two-Bin System was applied to the stochastic demand items.
