“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson


Hey, Nexus Hub Fans!

As you all know, we are a completely independent business. Times are tough for everyone at the moment, and we have done everything we can to keep our heads above water while staying closed. But with the recent announcement of an extension of the Covid-19 lockdown, it’s got to the point where we humbly need to ask for your help.

Due to the enforced lockdown, we have been unable to trade in any capacity, be it the retail store, our community or brand events and even retail of physical items on our website. This means we are unable to generate any income over the duration of the lockdown and in some cases have even had to refund orders where game/product releases have been delayed or cancelled indefinitely.

As the Nexus Hub, we have always been about you, our community and our shared love of our collective hobbies, but times have changed and circumstances beyond our control force us to reach out and ask our community for assistance so we can continue to pay our staff during this difficult time. We want to ensure that when we all come out of this, we are still able to re-open with the same incredible team that forms the heart of the Nexus Hub.


1. Our Awesome Staff – We have started a GoGetFunding page which allows our community to donate towards staff wages for the duration of the lockdown and thereafter, as nobody really knows the long term effect of this lockdown on our economy, events and there-in the most important aspect of our business, the people that work with us.

All funds raised through this campaign go directly to the staff of Nexus Popular Culture PTY, our retail, the content writers for Nexus Media (Nexushub and and our events staff. This includes the systems that help sustain them and their jobs during these trying times.


2. Retail – While we can’t trade in any form, we are lucky enough to have two options for our retail customers:

A – Exciting competition(s) on the go through Unplugyourself an initiative supported by the local supplier of tabletop games that aims to support retail stores by offering 3 x R 10 000 worth of game hampers in a draw, for any purchases made from (2020/03-20 to 2020/06/30) with deliveries made, just after lockdown concludes. Details can be found here

B – We will be launching our digital sales/ voucher system in the very near future for the website and that would help support the web team (s) and their respective platforms. In the interim you can purchase vouchers [here] and have the codes emailed to you for Xbox Live / PSN / Steam.


Above all of this, and to help motivate your support, we will as Nexus Hub, be offering the chance to win 1 years’ worth of games (A game a month of your choice) or a limited edition sealed-in-box PS4 20th Anniversary Edition console valued at up to R40 000.

Enter by supporting any of the above causes, especially the GoGetFunding Staff Support Campaign, and you will receive entry into the draw for every R200 spent at nexushub or donated through GoGetFunding.

As always, we are our community and with your help, we aim to remain your destination for everything gaming and geek, in events, retail, media and more. 


No matter which method you use to contribute towards the relief, it will be added to the overall campaign and enter you into the draw
