If you have an unripe, firm and/or green avocados, the best way I have found to store them is to simply leave them on the counter. They should ripen up in 1-4 days, dependings on how unripe they are and how warm their storage space is.
Once your avocado is ripe, either enjoy it immediately or stash it in your fridge to slow the ripening process and keep it perfectly green for longer. This greatly prolongs their life and they usually stay perfectly ripe in the fridge for about 3 days.
If you have cut into your avocado and have half of one needing to be stored, you have a few options for how to store it.
Another option is to freeze avocado for futire use. Freezing avocado when ripe makes for a wonderful thing to throw in smoothies or other avocado-filled recipes.
