Businesses tend to not send any mail on saturday, so there's a very low amount of postage to be deliverd on mondays. That's why there's no postal service by Postnl on monday for delivering letters and mail.

Packages are an exception though: online stores tend to ship orders also in the weekends, so it is possible to get a parcel delivered on monday if you order in the weekend.

Most PostNL locations are inside bookshops or supermarkets, so it depends on their opening times. But most have service on Monday.

I know the main PostNL in The Hague is open Monday-Friday 07:30-18:30 and Saturdays 09:00-17:00.
