    Something that will occur in the future. If you, for example, rob a bank, a term in prison may be in store for you.

    It means you've got something coming to you. It's usually nothing good, though that's not always the case.

    Re: To be in store for

    Is "to be in store for" the same as "await"?
    Gillnetter, so can I say "a term in prison may await you" instead of "a term in prison may be in store for you" in your example?
