There a few big stores in Low Yat but mostly it's small open shops and booths so it feels almost like a market.
The basement has ATMs, a few restaurants and a decent food court (Lemon Court).

The first 2 floor are mainly camera and mobile phones whereas at the upper 3 floors you find everything and anything concerning computers, notebooks etc.
Most shops have A4-sheets with the price list so it’s best to collect some of them and compare prices.
