While big name department stores and duty free shops, such as Yodobashi Camera and Sofmap, can easily be found in big buildings along Chuo Dori, a network of hundreds of smaller independent shops scattered in the surrounding alleys capture the unique atmosphere of Akihabara and are probably the best place to get a good deal.
