There is a Costcutter and Co-operative Food in the suburb and Meersbrook is also handily placed for Heeley Retail Park which has a Brantano, Currys, Matalan, Pets at Home, Next and Boots as well as Homebase on Chesterfield Road - both areas within the district boundaries.
Meersbrook Bank Primary School, Carfield Primary School and Mundella Primary School are the local primary schools and regularly exceed national expectations.

Off the A61 Chesterfield Road, Meersbrook has regular public transport for the 2.5 mile trip into Sheffield city centre. Alternatively, it is around a 20 minute drive to Chesterfield and you can also easily get to the Peak District or the M1. The closest airport is Robin Hood, under an hour away in Doncaster.
Meers Brook is the name of the stream in the village and is where the name came from many centuries ago. On the boundary of the Northumbria and Mercia Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, it was still dividing Yorkshire and Derbyshire into the 1900s. Once a collection of small communities, housing began being built here around the 1870s and the House was built in 1760.
