Wifi Outdoor/Indoor Extender-Repeater-Booster

I have a nice, outdoor Meraki Access Point in a remote business area and 1 client where in his little office building, the signal is too weak. It is not feasible for me to add another AP. Any recommendations on what the client can purchase (not too expensive) to strengthen my signal inside his office. Would be great if it came with an outdoor antenna you attach to wall or roof and then run it inside and just plug into an outlet and signal is boosted. If not sure will work with Meraki, then what do you recommend with "any" AP... Thx...

Look online for an outdoor directional antenna.  Make sure you buy one that works with the wireless bridge / wireless NIC type and frequency supported by both it and your router.  Another option is an outdoor wireless bridge.

Yes I have looked at those options... I was looking for specific models that others have had success with. Also, most outdoor antennas need to plug into the network thru Ethernet or usb... I don't want to tie down the client with a wire... I still want him to move around in his office with his laptop... why I propose the wifi repeater???

I really can't make any recommendations on brand or model here, and the product you or your client choose will be dependent on your specific environment.  You'll need to do a little research and product comparison online, or contact Meraki for recommendations.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
