You could also go the route Scribus -> PDF -> Ghostscript. I'm not sure,
Ghostscript can do CMYK JPEG, but then you might get arount that by
going Scribus -> PDF -> Ghostscript CMYK TIFF -> ImageMagick CMYK JPEG.

BTW: Are you sure the print shop won't do automated color correction or
something else? Did they provide a color profile for you to use, so your
RGB->CMYK conversion is correct?
